Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- It has been a week of stable gasoline prices in Ohio, despite rising oil prices.

Auto club AAA, The Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express reported Monday that the statewide average for a gallon of regular-grade gas was $2.54 per gallon, unchanged from a week earlier.

Ohio gas is more than $1 cheaper than it was last year at this time, when the average was $3.66.

Meanwhile, the cost of crude oil has jumped to the highest levels of the year, approaching $75 a barrel, on comments last week from Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke that the U.S. economy is nearing a recovery.

He was backed up by a report of rising home resales.
