COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio drivers are seeing cheaper prices at the pump compared with a week ago.
A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was listed at an average of $3.58 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's 15 cents cheaper than last Monday's average of $3.73.
Lower oil prices have helped decrease how much drivers are paying for fuel. Oil prices have been near their lows for the year amid lingering concerns about global economic growth and ample crude supplies in the U.S.
The national average for regular gas is $3.70 per gallon, down a nickel compared with a week ago.
