Ohio gas prices continue to drop; now below national average


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Motorists are finding Ohio’s gas prices have continued to fall in time for the holiday.

A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $2.20 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down 13 cents from the $2.33 reported this time last week and nearly 40 cents below the state average a month ago.

Monday’s national average was higher than Ohio’s at $2.27.

This time last year, the state average was $2.72 and the national average was $2.77.

Demand for gasoline is high for the summer driving season, but motorists continue to see savings at the pump. That is partly due to crude oil remaining relatively less expensive than in recent years.
