Ohio gas prices up more than 20 cents from price 1 month ago

Gas prices


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio’s average price for regular gas going into the workweek has climbed more than 20 cents from the state average this time last month.

The price per gallon in Ohio was about $1.92 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s up 22 cents from the state average of around $1.70 a month ago, but less than Monday’s average national price of around $1.98.

Both state and national average prices Monday remained lower compared with a year ago. Ohioans were paying an average of about $2.35 this time last year, while the national average was about $2.42.

Gas prices have increased recently due partly to a decline in gasoline supplies, relatively strong demand and continued refinery maintenance.
