Ohio gas prices drop slightly, remain under national average

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio drivers head into the week with the average price at the pump about five cents lower than a week ago.

The state average for a gallon of regular fuel was about $1.84 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s about three cents lower than the average price that drivers were paying a month ago and down about 14 cents compared with a year ago.

Ohio’s prices for regular gas continue running below the national average, which was about $1.97 to start the week. A year ago, the national average price was about $2.14.

An abundance of crude oil has contributed to the relatively low gas prices. Pump prices also typically fall during the winter months due to reduced demand.
