COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Gas prices in Ohio are up a few cents to start the work week.

A gallon of regular gas was averaging $3.07 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s 3 cents more than a week ago, but 15 cents less than last month at this time.

Ohio’s average is lower than the national average, which was $3.10 Monday. That’s a dime less than a week ago and about a quarter less than a month ago.

Among Ohio’s metropolitan areas, the Youngstown area has the lowest average at about $3.02 per gallon.

Analysts say gas prices will likely remain low amid decreased demand and lower crude oil prices.
