COLUMBUS — Drivers around Ohio have seen gas prices slip a bit lower since last week.
The state average for regular fuel was about $2.32 per gallon in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down a few cents from the average of $2.38 a week ago, but up from about $2.11 at this time last year.
The national average rose two pennies from last week to about $2.41 on Monday. It was much cheaper a year ago, averaging $2.11.
AAA says prices at the pump have been moving higher, as driving demand increases and the switch is made to more expensive summer-blend gasoline.
Locally, prices ranged Monday afternoon from $2.21 at United Dairy Farmers downtown Delaware to $2.49 at Marathon on Sunbury Road, according to ohiogasprices.com.
