Northeast Ohio gas prices climbed this week as local motorists paid an average 19 cents more at the pump. Today’s average is $3.816.
According to the Fuel Gauge, gas prices are continuing to rise across the country. The national average is $3.748, up 15 cents over last week and 45 cents this month. The state with the lowest average price is Wyoming at $3.189. Hawaii drivers are paying the highest average, $4.282 per gallon.
