Price Of Gasoline Dips Below $3 Per Gallon Across Tulsa Area
TULSA, Oklahoma - A check of gas stations around Tulsa Wednesday morning shows a number stations selling gas for less than $3 a gallon.
While AAA Oklahoma is reporting the average price across the state is $3.23 a gallon, in Tulsa and Owasso, gas stations like the QuikTrip at 11th and Utica have gasoline at $2.99 a gallon.
“Demand is down and WTI crude oil continues to sell in the low-to-mid 90s on the NYMEX,” said AAA Oklahoma spokesman, Chuck Mai. “In addition, now that [gas] stations are selling the cheaper-to-produce winter-grade fuels, the stars are in alignment to bring motorists even lower pump prices this fall.”
AAA expects the national average price of gasoline to drop another 10 to 20 cents by the end of October.
