Ohio gas prices dip slightly, remain under national average


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Gas prices around Ohio have dipped slightly in the past week.

The state average for a gallon of regular fuel was about $2.09 in Tuesday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s three pennies cheaper than a week ago but significantly higher than the average of $1.70 at this time last year.

The national average was $2.28, the same as a week ago. The national average a year ago was much lower at $1.71.

AAA says there has been a strong supply of crude oil on the market and gas prices have stayed relatively steady in recent weeks.
