COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio drivers are seeing the cost of gas continue to creep upward as the week begins.

A gallon of regular gas was averaging $2.50 in Ohio in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's up 9 cents compared with a week ago but remains significantly cheaper than a year ago. At this time last year, the state average was $3.77.

Ohio's average was slightly below the national average Monday, which was about $2.54 per gallon. That's up 8 cents from a week ago, but it is $1.16 cheaper than a year ago.

Analysts say prices at the pump are rising as gasoline costs catch up to higher oil prices.
