AAA: Ohio gas rises 9 cents from last weekWritten by Associated Press | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Ohio gasoline prices have risen another 9 cents in the last week and have gone up 33 cents since the early part of October.
A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the statewide average for regular-grade gas at $2.63, up from $2.54 Oct. 19.
Three weeks ago, regular was averaging $2.30 in Ohio.
Gas is now more expensive than it was last year at this time, when the Ohio average was $2.47.
Gasoline costs have been climbing along with the price of oil. Last week, the sagging dollar sent crude spiking to $82 a barrel for the first time in more than a year.
