Columbus, Ohio (AP) -- After rising steadily for more than a month, Ohio gasoline prices have fallen 9 cents in the last week.
A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the statewide average for regular-grade gasoline at $2.68 per gallon, down from $2.77 last Monday.
Prices for crude oil have been drifting in recent days as traders question whether soft demand for fuel in the U.S. and Europe justifies higher prices.
Ohio pump prices are a nickel higher than they were a month ago and are 12 cents below the current national average of $2.80.
One year ago, gas was more than 60 cents cheaper in Ohio, averaging $2.06 for regular.
