Cleveland - Your eyes are not deceiving you, gas prices have been dropping in Ohio.
The buckeye state has it's lowest average this year at $2.28 per gallon. This is nearly 30 cents lower then the national average, which sits at $2.56 per gallon, according to AAA.
“Trends are indicating that the month of December may bring some of the cheapest gas prices of the year,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “Currently, 19 states already have gas price averages less expensive than a year ago so as U.S. gasoline demand remains low and supply plentiful, motorists can expect to save at the pump as long as the price of crude oil doesn’t spike.”
