Gas in Ohio Averaging $2.47 per Gallon

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – reports the average retail price for gasoline Monday in Ohio was $2.47 per gallon, according to its survey of 5,345 gas outlets. That represents an increase of 7 cents per gallon over the past week.

In the Youngstown-Warren area, the average price per gallon was around $2.30 to $2.40 at several stations, according to GasBuddy.

The Ohio increase compares with the national average that has increased 3 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.32 per gallon.

Including the change in gas prices in Ohio during the past week, prices yesterday were 28.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and 15.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

“The lowest gasoline prices in 11 years are greeting motorists hitting the road this summer,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy. “Not only gasoline prices, but diesel too. In fact, every single state in the nation is seeing lower gasoline and diesel prices than where we started summer last year — both of which currently average $2.32 per gallon.”
