Oklahomans earning more

Oklahoma_A new federal report says Oklahomans living in the State's three metro areas earned more money last year.  The preliminary report by the U.S. Commerce Department Bureau of Economic Analysis says Tulsa led the way with per capita income rising 8.3 percent to more than $37,500 dollars for every man, woman and child in the Metro.

That makes Tulsa 66th in per capita income for the year among the 363 metro areas included in the survey.  The increase brings Tulsa up from 81st in 2005.  Oklahoma City ranks 103rd, increasing by just over 7% to more than $35,000.  Finally, Lawton ranks 214th after a per capita growth of more than 8%, bringing income growth to $30,000 this year.
