COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio gas prices have taken a big dip after two straight weeks of increases.

The state average was $3.21 for a gallon of regular gas in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's down 17 cents from last week.

Ohio's price is well under the $3.33 per gallon price at this time last year.

The national average was down also, to $3.29 Monday. That's 6 cents lower than a week ago, and well below the $3.55 average at this time last year.

Analysts say the falling prices are mostly due to abundant gas supplies, flat demand and the shift to winter-blend fuels.
