AAA: Ohio gas prices rise for 3rd straight week

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio gasoline prices are up 8 cents from last week and are higher for the third week in a row.

A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the statewide average for regular-grade gasoline at about $2.68 per gallon, compared to $2.60 last Monday.

Prices at Ohio pumps are 10 cents higher than they were a month ago but are 7 cents below the current national average of $2.75.

Fuel prices have been on the rise amid signs that the global economy may be improving, which could help boost demand for oil and gasoline.

Gas was much cheaper in Ohio a year ago, when the state's motorists paid $1.96 for regular, on average.

last time it went up they blamed it on George Bush. Who is going to take the blame this time for high gas prices?
