Ohio gas prices shoot back up

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — The big drop in gas prices in Ohio didn’t last long.

A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was listed at an average of about $3.65 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 27 cents higher than last Monday’s average of $3.38.

The Ohio price this week is 13 cents higher than the national average of $3.52.

The state average is about a dime lower than this time last month, and 6 cents lower than at the same time in 2012.

Analysts say they typically expect to see a spike in gas prices as the summer driving season approaches.

The lowest average price in the state Monday was about $3.58 in Youngstown and Warren.
