COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Gas prices around Ohio are up slightly as the new workweek begins.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $2.15 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's up 6 cents from a week ago, and a penny more than the average reported a month ago. The average price in Ohio a year ago was $2.45.
The national average price on Monday was $2.12, a penny less compared with last week's average.
Analysts say a drop in crude oil prices has driven a nine-week decline in costs at the pump, but those prices have strengthened in the past week and retail price drops are likely to be smaller or cease.
