AAA: Ohio gas prices rise as national average dips

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio's average gas price is about the same as the national average as the week begins.

The state average for a gallon of regular gas was $3.48 in the Monday survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's up 9 cents from a week ago but is 25 cents cheaper than the price a year ago.

Monday's national average was a penny cheaper at $3.47 per gallon, down a nickel from $3.52 a week earlier. The national average at this time last year was significantly higher at $3.81.

Last week, AAA reported Ohio had reached a notable benchmark - more than 1,000 consecutive days with gas prices topping $3. Experts don't expect the streak to stop anytime soon.
