COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio motorists are paying a dime less for gasoline than they were a week ago, but analysts are expecting prices to rise again before long.
Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the statewide average price for regular gasoline at about $3.27 a gallon, compared to $3.37 last week.
However, AAA says pump prices nationwide remain at record levels for this time of year. Regular was averaging $2.92 in Ohio during early November of 2010.
Experts predict gasoline will hit the $4 level again early next year.
Benchmark oil prices have jumped about 25 percent in the last month because of lower supplies and rising demand in the Midwest.
