COLUMBUS — Auto club AAA says gasoline prices continue to rise to heights never seen before in Ohio.
The statewide average price for regular on Wednesday was a record $4.16 a gallon, according to the daily survey of gas stations done by AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's three cents more than the previous record, set on Tuesday.
Ohio pump prices have hit three new all-time highs since Saturday. Ohio is now among the 10 states with the highest gas prices; the state's average is 18 cents above the current national average for regular, which is $3.98 a gallon.
Officials with AAA say the cost of gas keeps climbing due to high oil prices and the changeover from winter- to summer-blend gasoline.
