COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio’s average price for regular gas comes in slightly cheaper than the national average as the workweek begins.
The price per gallon in Ohio was about $1.69 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s up 9 cents from a month ago, but it’s 59 cents less than the average at this time last year.
The national average for regular fuel was $1.71 on Monday, down from $1.85 a month ago and $2.29 a year ago.
Gas prices have recently remained relatively low as a result of lower crude oil costs.
