Ohio’s gas tax will go up an additional 10.5 cents per gallon starting Monday. The increase comes as the state’s gas prices just increased 7.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.55/g Monday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 5,345 stations.
Still, gas prices in Ohio are 14.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago, yet stand 6.5 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
According to GasBuddy price reports, the cheapest station in Ohio was priced at $1.98/g Monday while the most expensive was $3.99/g, a difference of $2.01/g.
The lowest price in the state today is $1.98/g while the highest is $3.99/g, a difference of $2.01/g. The cheapest price in the entire country today stands at $1.92/g while the most expensive is $5.86/g, a difference of $3.94/g.
The national average price of gasoline has fallen 2.5 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $2.65/g today. The national average is down 19.2 cents per gallon from a month ago, yet stands 18.7 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
“For the seventh straight week, the national average price of gasoline has fallen, to a level last seen in March. But just in time for the upcoming holiday, the steak is at high risk of being broken,” said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.
