COLUMBUS, Ohio - Ohio motorists are benefiting from lower gas prices this week.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas in the state was $3.71 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's 14 cents lower than a week ago.
Prices are dropping after several factors pushed gas prices to near the $4 mark earlier this month. This time last year, the Ohio average was $3.37.
The national average Monday was $3.81, down a nickel from a week ago.
