OKLAHOMA CITY—If you have headed to the gas station lately, you probably noticed a jump in prices within the last week.
Experts from AAA say prices across the state have jumped 14 cents in one week.
The average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $3.19 in Oklahoma City, which is higher than this time last year.
Last year, drivers in the city were paying $3.17 per gallon.
Residents in Norman are paying $3.22 per gallon, compared to last year’s price of $3.19.
