OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The price of gasoline has gone back above $2 per gallon in Oklahoma.

AAA Oklahoma reported Friday the average price of a gallon of self-serve regular gasoline in the state is just more than $2.02.

AAA spokesman Chuck Mai says it's difficult to find a reason for the increase other than a general feeling that the economy is starting to recover.

The price is the highest gas has been in Oklahoma since November 8, 2008 and is an increase of 24 cents per gallon since mid-March, but is $1.47 lower than it was one year ago.

The price in Oklahoma is third lowest in the nation behind Arizona and South Carolina while the highest average is in Washington at nearly $2.42 per gallon.
