Gasoline prices in Ohio are above the week-ago and year-ago averages, while the national average is down from last week.  The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio is $3.65 in Monday’s survey from Auto Club AAA.  That’s up seven cents from last week.  It also tops the price from a year ago, when the average dropped to $3.54 after hitting record highs in spring.  In Zanesville gasoline prices range from $3.42 to $3.59 a gallon.  Crude oil prices have plunged since February. Investors now will closely watch upcoming Central Bank meetings and the aftermath of the election in Greece to see what steps may be taken that stimulate the global economy.  Nationally, the average price for regular gas is about $3.51, down three cents from a week ago.
