Ohio gas prices up slightly to start work week

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio gas prices are up slightly to start the work week but remain below the national average.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.49 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's 2 cents more than a week ago — and 28 cents lower than a month ago in Ohio.

Monday's national average was $3.57, which is 4 cents lower than a week ago. It's 10 cents lower than the price last year at this time.

Analysts say the price of crude oil was elevated on anxiety about the Middle East, though the likelihood of disruption in supplies was small.
