OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The price of gasoline is rising across Oklahoma - up by 22.5 cents during the past month.

Triple A Oklahoma said Tuesday that the average price for self-serve regular gasoline is $3.33 per gallon. The price is 24 cents per gallon lower than at the same time last year.

Prices in selected cities across the state range from $3.26 per gallon in Lawton and Tulsa to $3.43 in Guymon. Oklahoma City drivers were paying $3.34 per gallon while the nationwide average on Tuesday was $3.46.

AAA said gas prices are expected to continue rising in the coming weeks due to seasonal refinery maintenance and possible geopolitical threats to global oil supplies.
