Ohio gas prices down from a week ago

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio gas prices are way down to start to the work week.

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.
