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:
$2.936 New Philadelphia
Average gas prices nationwide are actually down by a penny this week, AAA said, sitting at $3.07, but for the last month, even with increased demand for fuel, gas prices have largely remained steady.
Gas prices haven’t spiked this high since 2014, AAA reported previously this year.
