Ohio gas prices creeping up

COLUMBUS — Ohio gas prices are still creeping up.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was $3.29 in Tuesday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 8 cents higher than a week ago.

Experts say prices are rising because of solid economic recovery in China and the U.S. and other factors.

Ohio’s prices are slightly below the national average of $3.31, which is a penny higher than last week.

The lowest average price in Ohio Tuesday was $3.26 in the Akron area.
