COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio drivers are still seeing gas prices drop.
The state average was $1.56, according to Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s about 13 cents less than a week ago and about 36 cents less than this time last month. A year ago at this time, the average was $1.90.
Ohio’s prices are still running way below the national average, which was about $1.83 on Monday. That’s down from $1.89 a week ago and $2.04 a year ago.
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.
