Ohio gas prices rise again, match national average; refinery strikes may push up costs


COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio gas prices are on par with the national average to start the week but remain significantly cheaper than at this time last year.

The state average for a gallon of regular gas was $2.43 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's up 10 cents compared with a week ago, but it's down $1.17 from a year ago.

The national average was the same as Ohio's at $2.43 on Monday. That's up 13 cents from a week earlier but is about a dollar cheaper than a year ago.

Before February, gas prices had mostly dropped for months. Analysts say an increase in crude oil prices and labor strikes at several refineries helped push gas prices higher.
