OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) –The average price for a gallon of gasoline in Oklahoma is on the rise and sits a single penny below the five-month high.

As of Monday, April 18, the average price for a gallon of gasoline in Oklahoma is $1.91, which is $0.57 more than it was on Valentine’s Day and $0.01 less than is was Nov. 25, 2015 according to AAA Oklahoma.

“Crude oil has risen a bit,” said Chuck Mai, AAA Oklahoma spokesman. “Not a lot, but some. Plus, demand is up substantially and we’re still weathering the springtime supply-sapping metamorphosis refineries go through each year as they gear down, clean out and ramp back up to produce cleaner-burning summer-grade fuels.”

Gas averages went up anywhere between $0.04 and $0.13 over the last week, with Lawton now sitting at $1.91 and Altus at $1.94. As a whole, Oklahoma’s average rose $0.07.

AAA Oklahoma believes the rise is likely to continue because the relatively low gas prices and approaching summer months is prompting more road trips.
