Average Ohio gas increases to about $2.09 per gallon

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohioans are continuing to see a rise in gas prices as the average price is reported at more than $2 going into the workweek.

The price per gallon in Ohio was about $2.09 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s up 17 cents from the state average a month ago, although still about 34 cents below the average this time last year.

The national average price in Monday’s survey was $2.11, compared with $1.97 a month ago. The national average price this time last year was $2.45.

Summer-blend gasoline that’s beginning to make its way from refineries to fuel terminals is likely to lead to higher prices in some areas over the next few weeks.
