Tulsa Gasoline Prices Could Go Higher
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The price of gasoline is rising across Oklahoma and AAA Oklahoma says the cost is expected to continue its upward trend.
The agency says the average for a gallon of self-serve unleaded regular in the state is $3.66 per gallon — up about 7-and-a-half cents per gallon from last week and up almost 27 cents from a month ago.
AAA says the cost is expected to rise another 10 to 15 cents per gallon because of the shutdown of oil refineries in the Gulf of Mexico as what is now Hurricane Isaac approached the region.
The cost of gas in selected cities in the state ranged from $3.56 per gallon in Muskogee to $3.70 per gallon in Tulsa. Drivers in Oklahoma City were paying an average of $3.67 per gallon.
