OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahoma motorists will pay less for fuel during the long Labor Day weekend than they did a year ago.
AAA Oklahoma says Tuesday's national average price for regular gasoline is $3.54 per gallon. But the average price in Oklahoma is about $3.45 per gallon. That's 16-cents less than last year's $3.61 per gallon.
Tuesday's national average price is nine cents less than a month ago and 21 cents less than the same day last year.
AAA projects about 400,000 Oklahomans will travel more than 50 miles from home during the holiday, a 3.7 percent increase over 2012. Eighty-five percent of them will be getting there by private motor vehicles.
Nationwide, AAA says 34.1 million Americans will travel over the holiday, a 4.2 percent increase from last year's 32.7 million travelers.
