COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Ohio motorists are paying more for gasoline coming out of the long holiday weekend.

A gallon of regular gas was averaging $3.51 in Tuesday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s up about a dime from a week ago, and it’s a few cents more than last month at this time.

The Ohio average is higher than the national average, which was $3.43 on Tuesday. That’s about the same as a week ago.

Among Ohio’s metropolitan areas, the Youngstown-Warren region logged has lowest average at about $3.34 per gallon.

Analysts expect prices to stay lower if refinery production remains strong and unexpected problems don’t increase oil prices.
