BENTONVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Wal-Mart Stores Inc. is cutting gas prices in Ohio and 17 other states by 10 cents a gallon for three months.

The world's biggest retailer says customers visiting participating Murphy USA and Walmart gas stations from Wednesday through Sept. 30 will receive the discount on all fuel, gas and diesel purchases when they use a reloadable Walmart gift card, Walmart MoneyCard or a Walmart credit card.

Ohio gas prices topped $4 a gallon earlier this spring but have since fallen to an average $3.35 for regular, according to AAA. Still, the government reported on Monday that Americans spent at the weakest pace in 20 months in May, a sign gas prices may be hurting the economic recovery.

Wal-Mart Stores is based in Bentonville, Ark.
