Ohio gas prices down slightly to start work week

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Gas prices in Ohio are down slightly to start the work week.

A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $2.44 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down 6 cents from a week ago. Gas prices remain significantly cheaper than last year at this time, when prices were averaging $3.66 per gallon.

Ohio’s average was below the national average Monday, which was about $2.62 per gallon. That’s up 8 cents from a week ago, but it is $1.06 cheaper than last year at this time.

Analysts have said prices at the pump could rise as gasoline costs catch up to higher oil prices.
