Gas prices around Ohio near national average

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gas prices around Ohio have inched closer to the national average over the past month but remain slightly below it.

The state average for a gallon of regular gas was $3.52 on Monday, according to the survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's a dime less than a week ago and a nickel cheaper than the national average of $3.57.

Both the state and national averages are 25 cents cheaper than a year ago. The national average is down two pennies from last week.

The price of oil reached a 2-year high last week amid fear of escalating tension in the Middle East and hope for continued economic stimulus measures from the U.S. Federal Reserve.
