The price of regular unleaded gasoline is headed into record territory. The price of regular unleaded jumped 18-cents overnight in Tulsa and no one can seem to explain why, other than to say it is a supply and demand issue.
The price of regular unleaded increased to $3.82 per gallon. That is only 11-cents below the all time high of $3.93. The price has jumped 50-cents in the past week.
Sure, you loved "The Catcher in the Rye" at the age of 16...but would you still love it? You appreciated "To Kill a Mockingbird" and "Cannery Row" way back when, but would that still be the case today?

A semi tractor trailer carrying concrete cinder blocks overturns this morning on westbound Interstate 244 near Utica Avenue. Oklahoma Highway Patrol Captain George Brown says OHP began investigation when they arrived to the scene. Authorities spoke with a witness that says the driver swerved to miss a ladder in the road. The semi hit a two to three inch ledge of asphalt while reentering the traffic lanes causing the load to shift. The trailer overturned sideways and lost the entire load.
For the second time is just days, the price of gasoline in Tulsa has taken a huge jump. The price of regular-unleaded increased overnight to $3.64 per gallon.
AAA spokesman Chuck Mai says the reason for the spike is difficult to pinpoint. Mai says rising prices for crude oil and tight gas supplies don't fully explain the increase and AAA is "puzzled" somewhat by the price.
The price of oil closed down yesterday $1.16 per barrel.
