Ohio Gas Prices Up To Start Work Week


UPDATED: Monday March 31, 2014 8:51 AM

Prices at the pump are up in Ohio to start the work week.
    
The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.56 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's a nickel higher than last Monday.
    
Monday's Ohio price is about 4 cents lower than a month ago, and just a penny lower than last year at this time.
    
The national average Monday was identical to the Ohio average at 3.56 per gallon. That's up 3 cents from last week, and 11 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.
