Motorists in Arkansas are enjoying the lowest gas prices in the U.S., and those in Oklahoma aren't paying much more.
AAA says the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline in Arkansas on Monday was $1.95 - the lowest in the nation. The average price was two cents higher in Oklahoma at $1.97, the same price as in Missouri. The average gas price in Texas was $1.96 a gallon and $1.98 in Kansas, Mississippi and South Carolina.
AAA says Oklahoma's statewide average price for regular gasoline has risen 12 cents during the past two weeks because of recent increases in crude oil prices.
The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline has increased for seven consecutive days and now stands at $2.18 per gallon.
