AAA says Oklahoma's average price for a gallon of regular self-serve hit $3.47 Tuesday, the highest price since Sept. 15. Prices ranged from a high of $3.56 a gallon in Stillwater and Ponca City to a low of about $3.37 in Lawton. Drivers in Oklahoma City are paying $3.44 per gallon while those in Tulsa are paying nearly $3.52.

The national average is $3.64.

AAA Oklahoma spokesman Chuck Mai says gas prices in the state have been in the $3.40 to $3.47 range for the past month being below $3 as recently as the day after Christmas.

Mai says declining inventories and signs of rebounding demand have resulted in rising prices across the country.
