COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Gas prices in Ohio continue to rise.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.59 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s 6 cents higher than last Monday — and 27 cents higher than this time last month.

Analysts say prices are up because seasonal maintenance is taking place at refineries, and crude oil prices have been rising as Russia’s military advance into Ukraine raised fears of economic sanctions against one of the world’s major energy producers.

The national average is about $3.46 per gallon, which is up 4 cents from last week and 18 cents higher than a month ago.
