Ohio's average gas price is lowest in US as week begins

By The Associated Press

Ohio is beginning this week with the lowest average gas prices in the country.

 

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio is beginning this week with the lowest average gas prices in the country.

The state average for a gallon of regular gas was $2.02 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. Ohio edged out neighboring Indiana by a penny to claim the lowest average.

Prices in Ohio have dropped from an average of $2.35 a month ago and $2.13 last week. But they haven't fallen enough to match the state average at this time last year, which was around $1.66.

The national average was $2.27 on Monday, down a few pennies from a month earlier but higher than the average of $1.80 a year ago.

AAA says increases in U.S. oil production contributed to gas price decreases in recent weeks.
