Ohio drivers are paying less at the pump after gas prices spiked during the Fourth of July holiday week.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.36 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's down 15 cents from a week ago.
 
A year ago, the average was $3.62.
 
Nationally, the average price for regular gas is about $3.40, a couple of pennies higher than last week.
 
According to gas prices listed on GasBuddy.com, a website where drivers report recent prices at the pumps in their area, Southeast Ohio prices range anywhere from $3.19 for a gallon of regular in Zanesville, to $3.49 a gallon in Athens.
 
There are signs that crude oil supplies face some constraints, which could push prices higher.
 
U.S. oil supplies swelled in June to 22-year highs. They've declined since then, as demand started to rise again in the United States. Refineries have cranked up fuel production.
