Ohio gas prices are continuing to head south this winter.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas in the Buckeye State was $3.35 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 2 cents lower than a week ago, and down 7 cents from this time last month.
But the Ohio average is still about 4 cents higher than the same week in 2011.
Nationally, the average cost was about $3.34 per gallon on Monday. That’s about a nickel higher than the national average at this time last year. However, most experts say prices should continue to drop at a steady pace for the remainder of the year.

Facebook says some users briefly kept from site
SAN FRANCISCO — Facebook says some users were briefly unable to access the site because of a technical glitch.
The social networking site with over 1 billion users worldwide says on Monday it made a change to its domain name system setup. The change resulted in some users temporarily not being able to reach the site. The problem was detected and the site is now fully back.
A DNS acts like a phone book for the Internet, translating a domain name like facebook.com into a number that points to a specific host computer.
Facebook did not say how many users were affected or for how long. Some technology blogs say the problems lasted about 20 minutes.
