Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- Prices at Ohio gas pumps are down 6 cents from last week amid a slide in oil prices to the lowest levels in more than two months.

A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the current statewide average for regular-grade gasoline at $2.51 per gallon, down from $2.57 last Monday.

Prices are right where they were a month ago but are up from last year at this time, when regular was averaging 80 cents less, at $1.71 statewide.

Oil prices have sunk below $70 per barrel for the first time since early October, pushed down by a strengthening dollar and by signs that opec doesn't plan to cut its output of crude to prop up prices.
