Gas Prices Decrease This Week

Gas prices in South Central Ohio dropped by ten cents this week to $2.171 per gallon, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report. As gasoline inventory rises for a second straight week, the Great Lakes and Central States region is seeing gas prices continue to drop compared to one month and one year ago.  According to the EIA, inventory in the region is 4 million barrels more than this time last year.

The region continues to reap the benefit of seeing significantly cheaper gas in most states from one year ago, including Ohio (-38 cents).  Other remaining states in the region are seeing a moderate drop in gas prices compared to last year.  Growing inventory and mediocre demand will allow consumers to continue to reap the benefit of cheap gas prices.

This week’s average prices: 

  • South Central Ohio Average                $2.171
  • Average price during the week of June 12, 2017                               $2.274
  • Average price during the week of June 20, 2016                               $2.532
