Ohio gas prices drop below national average again

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gas prices in Ohio are trending downward as summer gives way to fall weather.

The average in Ohio was $3.33 for a gallon of regular gas in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's 15 cents cheaper than last Monday and down 41 cents from a year ago.

The national average Monday was $3.40, down a bit from $3.47 a week ago. At this time last year, the average was $3.78.

Gas prices tend to decline soon after Labor Day, but last year they didn't start going down until mid-October. Experts attribute the price drop this fall to a variety of factors. Those include relatively problem-free refinery operations and increased supply while demand decreases with the close of the summer driving season.
