Average retail gasoline prices in Ohio have risen 10.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.39 per-gallon Sunday.
This compares with the national average that had fallen 3.2 cents-per-gallon in the last week to $3.46 per-gallon according to gasoline price website OhioGasPrices.com.
Including the change in gas prices in Ohio during the past week, prices Sunday were 1.7 cents per-gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 26.0 cents per-gallon lower than a month ago.
The national average has decreased 32.6 cents per-gallon during the last month and stands 3.1 cents per-gallon higher than this day one year ago.
"The national average has again decreased in the last week, but the decreases are beginning to slow down," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
"Wholesale gasoline prices rose strongly Friday which could send prices higher in states with among the lowest prices in the United States." DeHaan said.
