Gas prices in Ohio set new record high

Ohio motorists are being stung by gas prices now back at record levels, largely from surging oil prices.

Saturday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express put the statewide average price for regular-grade gasoline at $4.11 a gallon, surpassing the state’s all-time high set on July 3, 2008.

AAA Ohio Auto Club spokeswoman Kimberly Schwind says fuel prices keep climbing because of unrest in the Middle East and northern Africa, which has raised concerns about oil supplies.

The price of crude has risen 33 percent in two months.

Schwind says Ohio gas prices tend to reach their yearly peak in mid-May, on the brink of the summer driving season.

But she says the market has been more unpredictable than usual this year.

Gas prices in Ohio, however, remain comparatively low. In Hawaii, for example, the average price for a gallon of regular gasoline is $4.65.
