Oklahoma City reclaimed its position in July as the top major metropolitan area with the lowest unemployment rate.
The city's jobless rate dipped 0.6 percentage points last month, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. That was enough to push Oklahoma City's rate back to the lowest in the country at 4.8 percent.
Oklahoma City had logged the nation's lowest unemployment rate for 13 straight months before losing out in May to the Minneapolis area.
Minneapolis held onto that spot for two months before it was edged out by Oklahoma City in July. Its jobless rate was 4.9 percent.
The U.S. unemployment rate fell last month to a 4 1/2-year low of 7.4 percent. That is down from 7.6 percent in June.
In Oklahoma, unemployment rates dropped in 76 of 77 counties, according to the Oklahoma Employment Security Commission. Tillman County was the only exception, as its jobless rate rose last month to 6.6 percent.
It had been 5.9 percent in June.
Oklahoma County's unemployment rate was down 0.6 percentage points to 5 percent.
Ellis and Roger Mills counties in western Oklahoma shared the state's lowest jobless rate at 2.3 percent.
