I don’t know about the rest of you, but it has been the end of October since I’ve pulled up to a gasoline pump without glancing at the price-per-gallon displayed on the pump and saying “Ouch!”
Believe it or not, it has been that long since gasoline has been available at less than $2.80 a gallon, according to AAA’s statewide average for Oklahoma.
On Halloween, it jumped above that amount and never looked back since.
So far this month, the average price for a gallon of gas in the Sooner State has hovered near $2.90.
And especially this week, it hasn’t seemed to move much at all.
There probably are lots of reasons why the price stays high — the economy taking a beating, the roller coaster Stock Market, world tensions, among others — but we aren’t that far away from setting new record prices.
Here’s hoping that doesn’t happen anytime soon.
