Ohio gas prices up again to start work week

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Gas prices in Ohio are up slightly to start the work week.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.70 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s up about 2 cents from a week ago.

Monday’s Ohio price is 16 cents higher than a month ago, and about 5 cents higher than last year at this time.

The national average Monday was 3.67 per gallon. That’s up 3 cents from last week, and it’s 15 cents higher than a month ago.

Department of Energy forecasters expect the April through September national average to be about $3.57 a gallon, a little lower than the past few summers.
