New Work Week Brings Slightly Higher Gas Prices

Creative Commons

The average cost of gas for Ohio drivers has increased again from the previous week, but is still significantly cheaper than it was a year ago.

The average for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was about $2.29 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc.

That's 7 cents more than a week earlier. But it's down 46 cents from a month ago, after prices temporarily spiked because of a partial shutdown at a refinery. A year ago, the state average was $3.20.

The national average matched Ohio's at $2.29 on Monday, down from about $2.33 a week ago and $3.34 at this time last year.
