COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio gas prices continue to fall, while remaining slightly higher than the national average.

A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $2.34 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s down six cents from the $2.50 reported this time last week and eight cents below the state average a month ago.

Monday’s national average was slightly lower than Ohio’s at $2.31.

This time last year, the state average was $2.83 and the national average was $2.78.

Demand for gasoline remains on track to set a new all-time high for the 2016 summer driving season. But motorists continue to see savings at the pump due partly to crude oil remaining relatively less expensive than in recent years.
