CINCINNATI, Oh. – Gas prices are on the rise due to strong demand as millions across the country return to work from the Independence Day holiday celebrations.
According to this week’s AAA gas price report, the national gas price average is $2.87, which is a penny more expensive on the week, six-cents cheaper than last month, but 61-cents more expensive than at the same time last year.
Pump prices in nearly 30 states are seeing a jump of as much as eight cents, a dozen states saw prices drop and another dozen states’ gas price averages remain stable from last Monday.
“Demand for gasoline this summer remains very strong week-over-week, driving gas prices higher alongside rising crude prices,” said Jenifer Moore, AAA spokeswoman. “Today, motorists are seeing gas for $2.76 or more at 56 percent of gas stations across the country.”
Average pump prices in Ohio rose six cents on the week at $2.78 per gallon. The average is 53-cents more compared to this time last year. However, it is not the highest in the Great Lakes region. At $2.95, Illinois has the most expensive gas prices in the region followed by Michigan ($2.92).
