The price for a gallon of gasoline jumped by at least 10-cents around northeast Oklahoma early Wednesday.

A check of Tulsa area gas stations showed the price for unleaded regular at around $3.29 a gallon.

This comes after a report from AAA Oklahoma on Tuesday which showed gasoline has risen 22.5-cents in the past month.

AAA says gasoline prices are expected to continue to rise in the coming weeks due to seasonal refinery maintenance and possible geopolitical threats to global oil supplies.

Oil prices were little changed Wednesday as concerns over Russia's military advance into Ukraine eased, but the situation remained tense overall.

Russia was the world's second-largest producer of oil in 2012, accounting for 12.6 percent of global supplies, according to the International Energy Agency.
