“Some stations in Ohio had seen prices fall under $2/gallon this week as oil prices have plunged 25 percent since the start of October,” according to Patrick DeHaan, who is the Head of Petroleum Analysis for GasBuddy.

In fact, Ohio was one of the leading states who has seen prices drop by an average of 13 cents in the past week.

The national average for a gallon is much higher, at $2.44/gallon, than in Cleveland where it is $2.13.

Unfortunately, we appear to have hit bottom, according to DeHaan.

“Prices are heading up today thanks to a recent rebound in the price of oil," he said.
