Gas Prices Continue To Decline In Oklahoma
OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The price of gasoline continues to decline across much of Oklahoma. AAA Oklahoma said Tuesday in its weekly price survey that one gallon of regular self-serve gas was just under $2.97 per gallon -- down 2 cents per gallon from last week. The price in selected cities ranged from $2.87 per gallon in both Tulsa and Bartlesville to $3.17 per gallon in Idabel. The average in Oklahoma City was $2.93 per gallon and in Lawton the price was about $2.97 per gallon. AAA says the average price in Oklahoma is the fifth-lowest in the nation after Utah, Wyoming, Colorado and Idaho while Hawaii has the highest average price at $4.06 per gallon. The nationwide average is $3.30 per gallon. "Copyright 2013 Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed."

Mock drill in SD riles Keystone pipeline opponents
May 24, 2013 12:17 GMT
HOT SPRING, S.D. (AP) -- An emergency drill in Hot Springs has outraged opponents of the Keystone XL pipeline and a proposed uranium mine in western South Dakota after it portrayed the groups as domestic terrorists.
The Hot Springs School District on Tuesday practiced a lockdown after pretending to receive a letter from a group promising destruction unless the projects were stopped.
The school district and county have been bombarded with emails and calls about the drill from people who felt it unfairly demonized opponents of Keystone XL and a proposed uranium mine near Edgemont.
Farmer Don Kelley tells the Rapid City Journal (http://bit.ly/12S5HBk) he and others want an apology.
Fall River County Emergency Manager Frank Maynard says the focus was on the drill itself, rather than the fabricated threat, and no insult was intended.
