Gas prices in Ohio set new record high

Published: Sun, May 1, 2011 @ 12:00 a.m.

Associated Press


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.

Just a thought.
Profit takers such as those who purchase and operate the so called government for the people think on a long term bases. These controllers of and with money will allow (Cause) the price to increase untill it is profitable to tap the natural resources under this once great nation.
At that time we will see a relaxation of most of the E.P.A. rules that prevent such action at this time.
Remember....Never ever re-elect anyone! EVER!

Vote NO on all levies on Tuesday so you can use the money saved to buy gas instead of funding the cadillac healthcare and golden pension plans for public employees. Don't you deserve a break today instead of the selfish public employee unions.

Once again congress will have a meeting with the top oil execs to explain the surge in prices. Nothing will change because it will be nothing more than a show-----a waste of time. The fat cats continue to get fat and the little guy continues to get screwed.

When Obama is gone we will get another controlled individual who will take their orders from the banks and corporations -nothing changes.

Nothing changes except we go deeper into debt and look more third world daily.

Lots of people showing their ignorance by blaming a President, any President, for gas prices. The President doesn't set prices for gas and oil. Do you conservative REALLY want the price of gasoline being set by the government? Do you REALLY think that Mr Obama or Mr Bush or some future President should be able to lower---or raise--gas prices whenever he or she sees fit. The GOP has prevented every effort by Dems to regulate this kind of activity because this is what they want the "free market" to do to us. Of course that's not what conservatives want and that's what makes the snarky comments about Mr Obama so petty, so infested with partisan rancor that they get the scornful disdain they deserve

The price of gas-especially now-is being driven almost entirely by Wall Street speculation. Some of th gambling on gas/oil prices is blamed on "...uncertainly in the Middle East...". The truth is that we get ZERO oil from Libya, so that claim is a lie. It's all greed. It's the same greed brought to you by the same greedy bast***s who speculated your mortgage and the US economy into the mess we're still dealing with.

rcampbell, don't waste your breath on these dum dums who continue to parrot each other without basing their opinions on anything other than the fact they hate Obama. They don't waste their time with the facts.

Peacelover, thanks. Your article more or less proved my point that this is NOT Obama's fault. In fact it even says Obama is atleast making an effort to one, reduce our dependence on foreign oil from the middle east and two hes open to more drilling he just had to put a halt on it while the rig that blew up the Gulf was going on.

My Schwinn is just fine, thank you, just low on air. Now, where is my bicycle pump...and is my shifter on the left or the right side of the handlebar???

Btw, when are they installing those bike lanes on 680? And, if they install bike lanes on the turnpike, will that mean they will have to build more rest stops? This looks like it could be the "recovery" we have been reading about!

How about someone inventing tandem hook-ups so we can hook-up multiple bikes together and take the entire family for a ride. Suddenly, I had a thought, I really miss Billy Mays.
