Ohio gas prices just under $4 a gallon

Jun. 07, 2013 @ 12:00 AM

CLEVELAND -- Ohio motorists are getting a sinking feeling as they pull up to the pumps this week. Gas prices are way up and now are hovering around $4 a gallon.

Rising oil prices amid fears about refinery problems in the Great Lakes have pushed pump prices up over the dreaded $4 mark at some stations across the state. Others are almost there.

According to auto club AAA, the state average for a gallon of regular gas was $3.93 on Thursday, an increase of 9 cents from Wednesday and 27 cents higher than a week ago. Meanwhile, the national average Thursday was $3.63, up just 2 cents from a week ago.

The highest average Thursday in Ohio was $3.97 in the Columbus area.
