Ohio Gas Prices Leap Nearly 30 Cents In One Week
Gas prices have taken a big jump in Ohio and the U.S.
A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was listed at an average of about $3.84 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s up 27 cents from last Monday’s average.
Analysts blame the increase partially on recent signs that the U.S. and European economies still face considerable challenges.
The Ohio price this week Monday is 19 cents higher than the national average.
The state average is about 26 cents higher than this time last month, and 16 cents higher than at the same time in 2012.
The lowest average price in the state Monday was about $3.75 in the Youngstown area.
