Gas Prices Near 6-Month High

The nationwide average gas price is $3.49 per gallon.

Gas prices are nearing a six-month high across the country.

The nationwide average is $3.49 per gallon. On average, Oklahomans are paying 10 cents less than the national average, according to data from AAA.

"This year's springtime price spikes are largely the result of seasonal refinery maintenance and the EPA-mandated switchover to the production of summer-blend gasolines," said Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma. "Plus, unrest in the Ukraine hasn't helped.

Despite the tension in Ukraine, national prices are still 21 cents per gallon less than on the same date last year.
