Ohio Gas Prices Dip To Start Work Week
Prices at the pump are down in Ohio since last week, but the state's prices are still way above the national average.
The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.81 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's 11 cents lower than a week ago.
Monday's Ohio price is about 7 cents higher than a month ago, but it's 12 cents lower than last year at this time.
The national average Tuesday was $3.65 per gallon. That's 2 cents lower than a week ago, and a penny lower than a month ago.
Analysts say the higher prices are due to stronger than expected demand and other factors.
