It's a sign many of us in Green Country don't like to see, that gas prices are climbing higher.

Experts say it's due in part to refinery maintenance and the switch over to summer blend gasoline.

Right now in Tulsa, drivers are paying an average of $2.42 for gas.

"Gasoline prices have increased in all fifty states in the last week as refineries continue working toward cleaner, more expensive gasoline and as oil prices have continued creeping higher," said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "There shouldn't be any surprises that prices continue to migrate higher given the warnings in the past few months, thought that doesn't make it any easier for motorists to digest higher gas prices. Unfortunately as seasonal issues continue to weigh on markets along with higher oil prices, it's likely we'll continue to be in this pattern for at least a few more weeks."
