Gasoline prices are down in Oklahoma — and they keep falling.
AAA Oklahoma said Tuesday that the retail price for regular gasoline in the state has fallen for 27 consecutive days. The average pump price for regular gasoline was about $2.61 on Tuesday, down 41 cents from $3.02 on Oct. 29, the last day Oklahomans saw a day-over-day price increase.
Chuck Mai, spokesman for AAA Oklahoma, says the last time the Oklahoma average was this low was on Oct. 2, 2010. On Thanksgiving Day 2009, Oklahoma's average was $2.49, and Mai says motorists are on track to see the lowest Thanksgiving gas prices since then, not only in Oklahoma but across the U.S.
The national average price has fallen for 60 consecutive days and stands at about $2.81 per gallon.
