    Oklahoma Credit Card might be a short hose to 'Borrow' some gas from a fellow traveler...

    You're all correct!

    An Arkansas Toothpick is any small knife that "rugged men" use for picking their teeth.

    An Oklahoma Credit Card is a length of hose for siphoning gas from someone else's car.

    Texas Tea is crude oil.
