CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Gas prices are at their highest levels in more than six months.

The surge comes after drivers enjoyed below average prices over the past year.

The national average has remained above $2 per gallon for 40 consecutive days, according to AAA.

Ohio ranks third for the largest weekly increase in the U.S.

The average price in the Cincinnati area is $2.29 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.com.

Local prices are up 14 cents from last week and 23 cents from one month ago.
 
AAA says increasing demand and higher oil costs are to blame for the upward trend.

Prices are expected to continue to climb leading into the busy summer driving season.

Drivers, however, will still be paying the lowest prices in 12 years.

Cheapest gas price around Cincinnati:

  • $1.98, United Dairy Farmers at 4308 Kellogg Ave & Wilmer Ave
  • $1.98, Speedway at 3601 Columbia Pkwy & Stanley Ave
  • $1.99, Shell at 2700 Madison Rd & Edwards Rd
