Ohio gas prices down to start work week

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio gas prices are down to start the work week, following weeks of increases.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.51 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's about 14 cents lower than last Monday.

Monday's price is 14 cents higher than a month ago, but is considerably lower than the $3.72 per gallon that Ohioans were paying a year ago.

The national average Monday was about $3.53 per gallon, which is up a penny from last week, and 14 cents higher than a month ago.

Analysts say ongoing seasonal maintenance at refineries and concerns over simmering tensions in the Ukraine have been keeping prices up.
