There's no relief in sight for the pain at the pump in northwest Ohio as the latest AAA report shows gas prices have been on the rise for 31 days straight.
In Toledo, the average retail gas prices have risen 11.1 cents per gallon in the past week, now averaging $3.80, according to ToledoGasPrices.com. Nationally, gas prices have increased 11.9 cents to an average of $3.68 per gallon.
"The steady climb of retail gas prices is likely to continue following double-digit increases in wholesale prices with fuel production tightening in the majority of the country's refineries," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski. "Los Angeles has climbed to $4.28 per gallon with a 55-cent average price increase in the past month, and that rate was surpassed in Chicago ($4.09 average price) and Detroit ($3.86 per gallon average), where motorists saw 63- and 64-cent respective increases over the same period. New York crossed the $4 threshhold too."
As of Sunday, Toledo gas prices are 35.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and 51.4 cents higher than just one month ago. The national average has increased 42.2 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 16.7 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago, according to GasBuddy.com.
