CLEVELAND (WJW) — The average gas price nationwide is a little more than $3 as of Monday, AAA reported, and what Northeast Ohioans can expect to pay at the pump doesn’t differ too much from that price.

According to this week’s AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report, average gas costs in Northeast Ohio are $2.975, which is a 5-cent increase from last week. Last year, during this same week, average gas prices were $2.223 for the area.

Below is a list of average gas prices of cities in Northeast Ohio:

$2.999 Alliance
