OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The price of gasoline is falling in Oklahoma.
AAA Oklahoma reports the average price for a gallon of self-serve regular in Oklahoma was $2.57 Tuesday - down 8 cents from six days ago when the average was the highest it has been in 2015 in the state.
AAA spokesman Chuck May says refinery issues in the Midwestern U.S. have been resolved and production is rising. He says the two factors will likely push prices even lower.
Prices in selected cities in the state range from $2.42 per gallon in Lawton to $2.69 in Guymon. Drivers in Oklahoma City are paying an average of $2.57 per gallon and those in Tulsa are paying about $2.54.
The national average is $2.70 per gallon, down by 5 cents from a week ago.
