AAA: Ohio gas up 6 cents from last weekWritten by Associated Press | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Ohio gasoline prices have gone up 6 cents in the last week, mirroring a recent increase in oil prices.
According to a survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express, Ohio’s current average price for regular-grade gasoline is $2.71 per gallon, up from $2.65 June 14.
Oil has jumped from $64 a barrel on May 25 to the neighborhood of $80 as fears have eased that a debt crisis in Europe will put the brakes on global economic growth.
Ohio gas is 3 cents cheaper than the current national average for regular, $2.74 a gallon. One year ago, the state’s motorists were paying a little less for gas, $2.66 on average.
