Ohioans paying less for gas this month

COLUMBUS – Ohioans are paying roughly a dime less for gasoline, on average, than they were in late September, according to AAA’s latest numbers.

The auto club says its survey shows the current statewide average for a gallon of regular is about $2.76, compared to $2.86 two weeks ago.

U.S. Energy Department data suggests prices for gasoline are coming down because demand is falling as consumers find ways to conserve fuel in response to this year’s record gas prices.

AAA’s national average price for regular gas is about $2.77 per gallon, down four cents in the last two weeks.

The latest biweekly survey from industry analyst Trilby Lundberg also shows a four cent decline, to an average $2.75 for regular.
