Ohio gas prices drop from previous week


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio gas prices have fallen in the past week, but remain higher than they were this time a month ago.

A gallon of regular gas was averaging $2.50 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down about 18 cents from a week ago but about 10 cents over the price a month ago.

It was higher than Monday’s national average of $2.33, which was 5 cents lower than the previous week, but 4 cents higher than a month ago.

The cost of crude oil has moved higher over the past few weeks due to unexpected disruptions in places like Canada and Nigeria.

Prices may continue to fluctuate on the heels of news related to global oil supply and the U.S. dollar.
