Ohio gas prices down to start week

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio motorists are seeing lower gas prices this week and are paying less than the national average.

The state average for a gallon of regular gas was $3.56 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 9 cents lower than last week.

The Ohio price is 11 cents below the national average of $3.67, which is 6 cents higher than the national average a week ago.

Analysts expect further increases in pump prices this summer as greater demand, unrest in Egypt and production disruptions in the U.S. and other countries push up the price of crude oil and gasoline.

The cheapest average gas price in Ohio Monday was $3.47 in the Toledo area.
