COLUMBUS: Ohio gas prices are way down to start to the workweek.
The state average was $3.08 for a gallon of regular gas in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down a whopping 17 cents from this time last week.
The Ohio price was well under the national average of $3.19, which was 6 cents lower than a week ago.
The state average is 24 cents lower than last month at this time, and 33 cents lower than a year ago.
AAA experts say retail costs continue to fall amid sufficient fuel supplies, lower crude oil prices and refineries shifting to less expensive winter-blend gasoline production.
