Gas prices in Ohio start higher to begin the week

Nov. 12, 2012 @ 07:12 AM

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — For the first time in nearly a month, Ohio drivers are seeing an increase in gas prices as the week begins.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.40 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 8 cents higher than a week ago but level with the average at this time last year.

Nationally, the average cost has dropped to its lowest level since midsummer. It was about $3.44 per gallon on Monday.

That’s down slightly from $3.47 a week ago and about the same as the average a year ago.
