Gas prices are on the decline just in time for the summer driving season. According to AAA spokesman Jim Garrity, Ohio has seen the biggest yearly decline, as gas prices are down 46-cents since this time last year.
Throughout the Marion area, the average cost of a gallon of gas is two-dollars and 19-cents, which is down 37-cents from a year ago.
Other Midwest states including Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and Kentucky all have seen a decrease in gas prices between 20 and 41-cents over the course of the last year.
Garrity said the unexpected increase of crude oil and high gasoline production runs are driving prices lower.
