AAA: Statewide average $3.81 on Monday, much higher than nat'l average


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Prices at the pump are down in Ohio since last week, but the state's prices are still way above the national average.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.81 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's 11 cents lower than a week ago. Monday's Ohio price is about 7 cents higher than a month ago, but it's 12 cents lower than last year at this time.

In our listening area, Zanesville has the lowest price at the pump, at $3.63 per-gallon. Cambridge's reported low is $3.65 a-gallon, followed by Caldwell at $3.73. Barnesville's price at the pump is $3.77 per-gallon.

The national average Tuesday was $3.65 per gallon. That's 2 cents lower than a week ago, and a penny lower than a month ago.

Analysts say the higher prices are due to stronger than expected demand and other factors.
