(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Gasoline prices are again on the rise in Oklahoma.

Self-service unleaded is selling for an average of a $1.36 a gallon statewide, up a penny from Monday.

The average price in Oklahoma City is about $1.34 per gallon, an increase of about three cents during the past five days. Drivers in Tulsa are paying about $1.32 per gallon, up two cents per gallon from Monday.

The average price is still about 20 cents per gallon lower than a month ago in the state.

AAA Oklahoma spokesman Chuck Mai says the latest increase is in part due to a delayed reaction to OPEC's decision to cut oil production.

Mai says there's also speculation that more cuts will be made in December when oil begins flowing again from Iraq.
