Gas Prices Drop In Oklahoma, Nationwide Ahead Of Busy Summer Season

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The average price of a gallon of gasoline in the U.S. has dropped 11 cents over the past two weeks, and prices are on a steady decline in Oklahoma.

Average retail gasoline prices in Oklahoma City have fallen 5.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.24 a gallon Sunday, according to GasBuddy.com's daily survey of 669 gas outlets in Oklahoma City.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.50 per gallon.

"The slow trend downward in the national average has survived another week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "While unprecedented, the decline in the national average certainly has delighted motorists who are used to large spikes in gasoline prices that come with the territory of springtime. With Memorial Day just five weeks away, there's good news for motorists: prices will likely continue to lag behind year ago levels," DeHaan said.

Of the cities surveyed in the lower 48 states, Tulsa has the nation's lowest average price for gas at $3.21. Chicago has the highest at $3.97.
