NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio — Gas prices in Northeast Ohio are beginning to drop, according to AAA.
The average price for gas is 19 cents cheaper this week at $2.59 per gallon.
In the last month, the state of Ohio has seen the largest gas price decrease in the country, dropping 29 cents.
AAA said the reason gas prices are declining is because inventory has increased in the region.
New Philadelphia has the lowest gas price in the area at $2.45 per gallon, and Oberlin has the highest gas price in the area at $2.77.
