COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Prices at the pump are down in Ohio since last week, but the state’s prices are still well 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 seven 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 two 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, among other factors.
