Cleveland, OH (WOIO) - Not good news for drivers.

The price of a gallon of gasoline has gone up for the second week in a row gas prices have increased.

This week they went up a dime.

The cost for a gallon of regular, unleaded gasoline in Ohio is now around $2.541. The national average retail price for a gallon of self serve regular is $2.577.

According to Triple A, the cause of the increase is blamed on the jump in the market price for oil along with the weak US dollar.
