OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) –The national and state average for a gallon of gasoline may have gone up slightly over last week, but AAA Oklahoma says 2016 is poised to be a record year for gasoline consumption.

The average price for a gallon of gasoline went up one cent over last week and stands at $1.923, which is 58 cents higher than the lowest average so far this year on Feb. 13 when it was $1.34.

“AAA is predicting drivers will pay some of the lowest prices for the summer months in more than a decade, barring unforeseen challenges in supply and refinery production,” said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. “The focus now is on whether refiners can keep pace with the expected increase in demand. Gasoline demand is still above where it was a year ago, and as more drivers take to the roads, refiners will work to increase gasoline production to levels that meet this higher demand. A number of refineries are reportedly ramping up production right now.”

The national average for a gallon of gasoline is $2.14, which is $0.39 less than it was April 25, 2015.
