Gas prices average 3.99 in Cincinnati

CINCINNATI (Brad Underwood) -- Gas prices held steady during Memorial Day weekend, but as we get closer to the official start of summer, the price for a gallon is going up.

According to AAA, the greater Cincinnati area is above the national average.

Around the tri-state, the cost for a gallon is pretty similar wherever you go with a few exceptions.

With rewards and membership cards, you might catch a break, but it's still going to cost you more than it did Memorial Day Weekend.

$3.99 for one gallon of gas seems to be the popular price around Cincinnati. While AAA has the average at $3.66, Cincinnati is a good 20 to 30 cents higher.

"I use a lot of gasoline for business. I travel around, that's why it's killing me, seeping into the profits," says Charles Hicks.

So for Hicks, he'll travel a little farther for a break.

In Florence, gas is a lot cheaper. The Speedway and Murphy's Express on U.S. 42 are currently at $3.57 a gallon.

Jeremy in Chowning lives in Carrolton, Ky. and says he's coming back to Florence on Sunday to fill up a 100 gallon tank.

"I think we used 4,000 gallons of gas last month for my business, so it don't really matter at this point. When it fluctuates 30 cents, it adds up quick," he says.

For Dylan Graff, a trip to the Florence station is normal. He says gas seems to always be cheaper in Florence.

"I live in Crescent Springs; it's $4 over there. I always drive [to Florence] to fill up," says Graff.

Back in Ohio, $3.99 seems high, but it's not the highest. Three states currently average more than $4 a gallon.
