TULSA, OK -- Only two other states have cheaper gas this week than Ok­la­homa. At an av­er­age of $2.39 per gal­lon, only mo­torists in Delaware and Mis­souri will pay less. State gas price av­er­ages dropped 9-cents in the past week. On Novem­ber 11, La Se­m­ana ver­i­fied un­leaded gas at just $2.09 per gal­lon at a Love’s sta­tion near Ard­more, the same day un­leaded was sell­ing for $2.19 in Tulsa and Ok­la­homa City.

Across the na­tion, prices are as much as 12-cents to a nickel cheaper a gal­lon on the week in more than twothirds of the coun­try. As de­mand drops and the end of re­fin­ery main­te­nance sea­son wraps-up, the na­tional gas price av­er­age is $2.70. That price is six cents less than last Mon­day, 21-cents less than last month and just 14-cents more than last year. In fact, the year-over-year price dif­fer­en­tial has not been this small since early Jan­uary.

“Prices could plunge even lower, es­pe­cially if we see a surge in gaso­line pro­duc­tion af­ter re­fin­ers fully restart units from the fall main­te­nance sea­son,” said Leslie Gam­ble, AAA Ok­la­homa spokesper­son. “Also driv­ing down pump prices is the fact that crude oil is sell­ing un­der $65/bbl, a rare sight this year.”

To­day, 41 per­cent of gas sta­tions na­tion­wide are sell­ing un­leaded gaso­line for $2.50 or less. In com­par­i­son, the ma­jor­ity of gas sta­tions were sell­ing gas for $2.51 or more at the start of sum­mer dur­ing the Memo­rial Day hol­i­day week­end.

The na­tion’s top 10 least ex­pen­sive mar­kets are: Delaware ($2.35), Mis­souri ($2.37), Ok­la­homa ($2.39), South Carolina ($2.40), Ohio ($2.40), Texas ($2.40), Louisiana ($2.42), Alabama ($2.43), Mis­sis­sippi ($2.44) and Arkansas ($2.45).

The na­tion’s top 10 largest weekly de­creases: Ohio (-12 cents), Michi­gan (11 cents), Ne­braska (-10 cents), Iowa (10 cents), In­di­ana (-9 cents), Kansas (-9 cents), Delaware (-9 cents), Mis­souri (9 cents), Ken­tucky (-9 cents) and Ok­la­homa (-9 cents).
