COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio motorists head into Christmas week with gas prices remaining below $2 and more than 10 cents less than a week ago.

The state average was about $1.81 for a gallon of regular gas in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That compares with about $1.92 the same time last week.

Ohioans this time last year were paying more than $2, with the state average around $2.22.

Average gas prices nationally are around $2. That’s about 9 cents less than a month ago and around 41 cents below the average price a year ago.

The lower gas prices have been largely driven by the falling price of crude oil. Pump prices also typically fall during the winter months due to reduced demand.
