COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio drivers are seeing an average price at the gas pump of about $1.66 for a gallon of regular fuel.
The state average reported in Tuesday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. was about 16 cents lower than the average price drivers were paying a week ago and about 33 cents below what they were paying a year ago.
Ohio’s prices for regular gas continue running below the national average, which was about $1.88 on Tuesday. A year ago, the national average price was about $2.06.
Gas prices are expected to remain relatively low because there is more than enough oil and gasoline around the world to meet demand. Pump prices also typically fall during winter months due to reduced demand.
