COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Prices at the gas pump in Ohio are up again.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.53 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s 9 cents higher than last Monday – and 24 cents higher than a month ago.

However, the Ohio average Monday is 18 cents lower than at the same time last year.

The national average is about $3.42 per gallon, which is up 6 cents from last week and 13 cents higher than a month ago.

The lowest average price in the state Monday was $3.48 in the Youngstown area.

South Carolina has the lowest average gas prices in the U.S., at just over $3.12, according to Gasbuddy.com. Hawaii has the highest prices, averaging $4.07.
