OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The average price of gas continues to rise in Oklahoma.

AAA Oklahoma reports the average price of a gallon of regular, self-serve gas in the state is nearly $1.72 per gallon on Monday. The price is up almost eight cents per gallon since last week and is 31 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

Prices in selected cities range from $1.61 per gallon in Lawton to nearly $1.75 in McAlester. Motorists in Tulsa are paying $1.70 per gallon while the cost is just more than $1.71 in Oklahoma City.

The national average is $1.81 per gallon and AAA said the price is expected to continue rising as refineries undergo maintenance ahead of the summer driving season. AAA said some refineries have also cut production due to abundant supplies.
