Ohio gas prices dip after surge prompts concerns

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio gasoline prices have dropped by a few cents, mirroring a decrease in the national average.

The average price for regular gas in Ohio is $3.71 a gallon in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express.

Drivers in the Buckeye State were paying $3.79 last week and $3.87 a year ago.

Prices have taken a downward turn after a four-month surge pushed gasoline to nearly $4 per gallon in early April. That left drivers, politicians and economists worried that prices might soar past all-time highs, angering voters and dragging down an economy that is struggling to grow.

Nationally, the average price of regular gas is about $3.86, down four cents from a week ago.
