Ohio gas prices up to start work week

May. 06, 2013 @ 03:08 PM

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Ohio motorists are paying more for gas this week.

A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was listed at an average of about $3.68 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 12 cents higher than last Monday’s average of $3.56.

Experts say a better-than-expected jobs report last week and other factors pointed to growth, which pushed oil prices higher.

The Ohio price this week is 16 cents higher than the national average.

The state average is a dime higher than this time last month — but a dime lower than at the same time in 2012.

The lowest average price in the state Monday was about $3.63 in the Akron and Canton areas.
