COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohioans are seeing lower gas prices than drivers in neighboring states as the week begins.
The state average for a gallon of regular fuel was about $2.14 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down from about $2.23 a week ago and $1.93 at this time last year.
The national average was higher than the state average at $2.30 on Monday, down a penny from a week earlier. A year ago it was $1.93.
AAA has said gas prices are expected to increase this month as demand rises and refiners start switching from winter-blend to summer-blend gasoline.
