Gas prices up to start work week

Gas-Prices-Generic-1

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio motorists will be paying more at the pump to start the work week.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.65 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s about 7 cents higher than last Monday.

Monday’s price is 31 cents higher than a month ago, but is a few cents lower than last year at this time.

The national average Monday was about $3.52 per gallon, which is up 3 cents from last week and 18 cents higher than a month ago.

Analysts say the national average price has been rising due to ongoing seasonal maintenance at refineries and concerns over simmering tensions in the Ukraine.
