COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio drivers are still paying less than $2 per gallon to fill their tanks this week.
The average was $1.90 per gallon of regular gas in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s 13 cents less than a week ago and $1.41 cheaper than at this time last year.
The state average dropped below $2 last week for the first time in more than five years.
Some gas stations in the Mahoning Valley have advertised regular gasoline as low as $1.75 per gallon.
An Ohio AAA spokeswoman said an oversupply of crude oil worldwide has decreased prices, and fuel costs also tend to be lower in winter. She said it’s an unusual situation, which makes it difficult to predict how far gas prices might fall.
The national average Monday was $2.20 for regular gas, down slightly from last week.
