OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline is currently the third lowest in the nation.

AAA Oklahoma reports Tuesday that the statewide average is $3.06 per gallon, virtually the same as last week and lower than the average price in all but Missouri and Montana. Missouri's average price is $2.99 per gallon while the average in Montana is $3.01.

The highest state averages are $4.02 per gallon in Hawaii and $3.66 in Connecticut.

In Oklahoma, prices in selected cities range from about $2.99 per gallon in both Grove and Lawton to $3.09 per gallon in both Guymon and McAlester. Drivers in Tulsa are paying $3.01 per gallon while those in Oklahoma City are averaging $3.04.

AAA said it expects the price for gas to trend lower during 2014.
