COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Prices at the gas pump in Ohio are slightly higher than a week ago.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.71 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s up about 6 cents from a week ago.

Monday’s Ohio price is identical to a month ago, and about 12 cents higher than last year at this time.

The national average Monday was $3.65 per gallon. That’s down 2 cents from last week, and it’s 2 cents higher than a month ago.

Analysts expect prices to fall into the summer due to ample U.S. crude oil stocks and other factors.
