Ohioans pay less at pump as gas prices drop with end of summer, no major refinery problems

Gas prices in Ohio are trending downward as summer gives way to fall weather.
The national average Monday was $3.40, down a bit from $3.47 a week ago. At this time last year, the average was $3.78.
Gas prices tend to decline soon after Labor Day, but last year they didn't start going down until mid-October. Experts attribute the price drop this fall to a variety of factors. Those include relatively problem-free refinery operations and increased supply while demand decreases with the close of the summer driving season.
