COLUMBUS, Ohio — Gas prices inched up slightly to start the week though Ohio drivers are still paying less than $2 per gallon.
The average was $1.97 per gallon of regular gas in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's seven cents more than a week ago and $1.43 cheaper than this time last year.
The state average has dropped below $2 in recent weeks for the first time in more than five years.
Oil slipped below $48 a barrel Monday and is down 44 percent in the past three months, reflecting high supplies and muted demand from much of the world.
The national average Monday was $2.13 for regular gas, up seven cents from last week.
