Average fuel prices in Ohio increase slightly

COLUMBUS — Gasoline prices in Ohio are up for the second week in a row and are well above the prices from this time in 2010.

A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express said the statewide average is about $3.10 per gallon for regular-grade gas. That’s up from $3.08 a week ago. A year ago, the per-gallon average in Ohio was $2.53.

In Medina, the most reasonable price for a gallon of regular-unleaded fuel was listed this morning at $3.07 at three area stations. They are Speedway, 3239 Medina Road, Sunoco, 2884 Medina Road, and BP, 2900 Medina Road, according to OhioGasPrices.com.

The website lists Marathon and Shell stations in Oxford as having the cheapest gas statewide at $2.76 per gallon, while the most expensive is $3.40 at a Discount Fuel in south Toledo.

Gas prices have been increasing since late last year, and analysts expect the cost of regular gasoline to increase further by spring ahead of the summer driving season.
