Ohio gas prices up; fuel costs expected to rise this month

By  | 

COLUMBUS, Ohio - Gas prices across Ohio have increased again over the past week.

Ohio's average for regular fuel was about $2.23 per gallon in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's a dime more than the state average last week and well above the average of $1.87 at this time last year.

The national average was $2.31 on Monday, up from $2.29 a week earlier and $1.81 a year ago.

West Virginia gas prices decreased by a penny this week to $2.245 per gallon, according to AAA East Central’s Fuel Gauge Report.

AAA says gas prices mostly held steady during February but are expected to increase this month as demand rises and refiners start switching from winter-blend to summer-blend gasoline.
