Prices at Ohio gasoline pumps are down 10 cents this week amid a slump in oil prices.

A survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express puts the current statewide average for regular-grade gas at $2.48 per gallon, versus $2.58 last Monday.

The cost of crude oil slid to its lowest level in a month on Friday on evidence that consumers and businesses are continuing to use less gasoline and diesel.

Ohio's average gas price of $2.48 is steeper than a year ago, when the state's motorists were paying $1.88 a gallon for regular, on average.
