AAA: Ohio Gas Prices Up 2 Cents Since Last Week

Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio gasoline prices have edged higher in the last week after declining during most of June.

The latest survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the statewide average for regular at about $2.57 per gallon, up 2 cents from last Monday.

Prices for oil hit an eight-month high above $73 a barrel last week as part of a rally that has doubled the cost of crude since March.

But oil prices have been backing down in recent days on gloomy U.S. Consumer confidence and jobs numbers.

Ohio pump prices remain much lower than they were a year ago, when the state was just coming off an all-time high of $4.05 for regular-grade gas.
