Ohio gas prices down about 15 cents a gallon

COLUMBUS — Gas prices are down this week in Ohio.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.37 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 15 cents lower than a week ago and the first time in three weeks that prices are down to start the work week.

Pump prices in Ohio are 11 cents lower than this time last month. Last year at this time, state drivers were paying even less — $3.23 a gallon.

Nationally, the average cost was about $3.39 per gallon on Monday. That’s 11 cents higher than the national average at this time last year.
