Ohio gasoline prices back up, still higher than national average

COLUMBUS — The price of gas has gone back up in Ohio and continues to remain higher than the national average.

A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was listed at an average of about $3.83 in today’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s up 14 cents from last week’s average.

The Ohio price this week is 21 cents higher than the national average.

The state average is about 15 cents higher than this time last month, and 27 cents higher than at the same time in 2012.

The price of oil remains below $92 a barrel as prices are being pressured by weak economic outlook around the world.
