COLUMBUS — Gas prices around Ohio are down compared with a week ago, leaving them near where they were at this time last year.
Ohio’s average for a gallon of regular fuel was $2.28 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down about a dime from last week, and just under the average from a year ago, when it was $2.30.
The national average was about $2.39 on Monday, down three pennies from last week. The national average was lower a year ago at $2.21.
AAA says anticipated higher summer demand hasn’t yet kicked in, so prices at the pump are expected to rise in the coming weeks.
Locally prices ranged from $2.21 to $2.49 Monday.
