Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Gasoline prices are up 3 cents from last week as oil prices remain relatively stable amid questions about the strength of the economy.

The latest survey from auto club AAA, The Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the statewide average for a gallon of regular-grade gas at $2.47 per gallon, up from $2.44 last Monday.

Ohio pump prices are 8 cents lower than a month ago.

At this time last year, a gallon of regular was considerably more expensive in the state, averaging $3.83.

The cost of crude oil has traded between $65 and $75 for the last few months as investors consider the effects of weak consumer demand on the global economic recovery.

    According to the OhioGasPrices website, one gas station in Marietta has the highest price in the entire state - at least 14 cents more than any other station in town. The crazy thing is that every time we drive by this station there are people filling up. Wake up!
