COLUMBUS — Ohio gas prices are down a nickel after a week that saw oil prices dip to their lowest levels this year.
Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express shows regular-grade gasoline is averaging $3.56 a gallon statewide, compared to $3.61 a week ago.
Gas was still a good deal cheaper in Ohio last year at this time, when the average for regular was $2.67.
The cost of crude oil fell below $76 last week amid concerns about a slowing U.S. economy and worsening European debt crisis. Last month oil was trading around $100 a barrel.
