AAA: Ohio gas edges up 2 cents to average $3.60

COLUMBUS, OH (AP) - Gasoline costs slightly more this week at Ohio gas pumps, though it's still much cheaper than the highs seen during the spring.

A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express shows Ohio's average price for regular-grade gasoline is $3.60 a gallon, up 2 cents from last Monday's $3.58.

Ohio prices soared to a record $4.16 for regular on May 4 following a spike in oil prices as an anti-government uprising in Libya caused shortages of crude from that country.

Last year at this time gas was a relative bargain in Ohio, with regular averaging $2.73 per gallon statewide.
