COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Gas prices around Ohio have dipped further as the partial shutdown of the federal government enters its second week.
A gallon of regular gas was averaging $3.22 in Ohio in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's 11 cents cheaper than a week ago and 54 cents less than a year ago.
Monday's national average was about $3.35, a nickel less than a week ago. It's 46 cents cheaper than the national average at this time last year.
9 On Your Side reporter Mario Ramirez says the Tri-State's average gas price dropped to $3.26.
The downward trend is expected to continue if the budget impasse and government shutdown drag on, reducing demand for energy and resulting in lower fuel prices. That would be a boon for drivers but also signal a weak economy.
