Ohio gas prices still rising

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio motorists will see higher gas prices to start the work week.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was $3.39 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's 9 cents higher than a week ago.

Experts say prices are continuing to rise because of solid economic recovery in China and the U.S. and other factors.

The national average Monday was $3.35 — about 4 cents higher than a week ago and 6 cents higher than this time last month.

The Ohio average is about the same as a year ago at this time.

The lowest average price in Ohio Monday was about $3.35 in the Toledo and Youngstown areas.
