Ohio gas prices on the rise

Dec. 31, 2012 @ 07:12 AM

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio motorists are seeing rising gas prices again.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was $3.32 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 9 cents higher than a week ago, and the second consecutive week the price has risen by that amount. It’s still 9 cents lower than the same time last month.

Prices have gone up after some areas of Ohio saw pump numbers fall below the $3-per-gallon mark briefly the week before Christmas, thanks to lower demand and higher inventories.

The national average Monday was $3.29, 4 cents higher than last week.

Lowest average price in Ohio Monday was $3.29 in the Youngstown area.
