Gasoline prices across Tulsa and parts of northeast Oklahoma have dipped below $2 a gallon.  

A check of stations around Tulsa shows a gallon of regular selling for $1.99, with some stations selling it for $1.97 a gallon. On Tuesday, many of those same stations were selling gasoline for $2.08 a gallon.  

According to GasBuddy.com, the average price in Tulsa is $2.12. 

Oklahoma City drivers have seen their gas prices below $2 for the past week. 

AAA says drivers across the U.S, drivers are enjoying some of the lowest gas prices in over 10 years. The national average is now $2.38 a gallon.

While the lower prices are good for drivers, they're bad news for the oil industry. Some oil companies like ConocoPhillips are dealing with falling revenue from falling oil prices by laying off workers.

The company announced last week it is laying off 10 percent of its workforce nationwide. It says some of those layoffs will take place in Bartlesville. 

ConocoPhillips has 1,700 employees in Bartlesville but so far the company has not said how many employees there could be let go.
