COLUMBUS (AP) — Gas prices around Ohio have increased from the same time last week.
The state average was $2.25 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. The average price in Ohio this time last week was $2.16.
Ohio’s price to start the week was slightly above the national average price of 2.22 in Monday’s survey.
But both the state and national prices remain below what they were the same time a year ago.
The national average this time last year was $2.70. Ohioans were paying an average of about $2.62 at the same time last year.
Historically, gasoline demand increases leading into the summer driving season.
