COLUMBUS — Auto club AAA says gasoline prices continue to rise to heights never seen before in Ohio.
The statewide average price for regular today was a record $4.16 a gallon, according to the daily survey of gas stations done by AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s three cents more than the previous record, set on Tuesday.
Ohio pump prices have hit three new all-time highs since Saturday. Ohio is now among the 10 states with the highest gas prices; the state’s average is 18 cents above the current national average for regular, which is $3.98 a gallon.
Around the city of Medina, the most reasonable price for a gallon of regular-unleaded fuel was listed at $4.09 this morning at Sheetz, 5100 Ridge Road, according to OhioGasPrices.com. In Seville, gas was priced this morning at $4.05 at the Pilot station, which is located at 8924 Lake Road.
The website lists a Pit Stop station in Coshocton as having the cheapest gas statewide at $3.85 per gallon, while the most expensive is $4.35 at a Hall Fuel Mart in Canton.
Officials with AAA have said the cost of gas keeps climbing due to high oil prices and the changeover from winter- to summer-blend gasoline.
