Ohio gas prices still rising

Feb. 11, 2013 @ 06:23 AM

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio gas prices are still rising.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was about $3.57 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s a nickel higher than a week ago.

Prices have gone up 18 cents in the past two weeks in the Buckeye State.

The state average is slightly under the national average of about $3.59, which is 7 cents higher than a week ago. The price in Ohio is about 29 cents higher than the same time last month.

Experts say prices are continuing to rise because of solid economic recovery in China and the U.S. and other factors.

The lowest average price in Ohio Monday was about $3.52 in the Dayton area.
