COLUMBUS: Ohio motorists are seeing gas prices that are still below the $2 mark.

The state average was about $1.82 for a gallon of regular gas in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s about 38 cents cheaper than a month ago when the state average was about $2.20 cents. The state average a week ago was $1.83.

The national average for regular fuel was slightly higher at about $2.04 on Monday, down 3 cents from a week earlier. At this time last year, it was around $2.78.

Drivers are continuing to benefit from crude oil prices that remain noticeably low compared with previous years.
