Ohio gas prices down to start the week

COLUMBUS — Ohio motorists are seeing slightly lower gas prices to start the work week.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was about $3.70 in today’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s about 12 cents lower than a week ago.

The Ohio average is about 8 cents lower than the national average of 3.78, which is a nickel higher than the national average price of a week ago. The national average has risen 44 cents in the past month.

The Ohio average is about 30 cents higher than a month ago, but just a few cents higher than at the same time in 2012.
