Gas prices in Oklahoma are higher than 29 other states and a Triple A Oklahoma spokesman calls it 'puzzling'. According to the American Automobile Association, the statewide average is $3.58 a gallon, up 20 cents the past week. That's more expensive than 29 other states, says Spokesman Chuck Mai. "To tell you the truth, we're a little puzzled why Oklahoma's gas prices are as high as they are. Crude oil prices are higher and supplies are tight due to refinery maintenance-both planned and unplanned-but that still doesn't explain the disparity between Oklahoma's prices and those of other states," he said.
