Oklahoma’s gasoline price average has dropped 11 cents over the last 10 days, AAA Oklahoma said June 30, giving the state the second-lowest state gas price average in the nation.

AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report shows the state average for self-serve regular now stands at $2.438, about a nickel more than price averages in both Oklahoma City and Tulsa. Today’s state average is 95 cents above the average recorded on Jan. 1 of this year but $1.43 below the price one year ago.

“Oil prices seem to be in somewhat of a holding pattern right now, “AAA Oklahoma’s Chuck Mai, said. “They’ll be up a couple bucks one day and down a couple the next but still hovering around $70 per barrel after doubling in price from March to June. International events continue to impact oil prices on the futures markets.”

Only Missouri at $2.414 has a lower statewide gasoline price average today than Oklahoma, according to AAA. Hawaii has the nation’s highest at $3.117, followed by Alaska $3.013, California $2.990, Washington state $2.873 and New York $2.837.
