COLUMBUS, Ohio — Ohio motorists are seeing higher gas prices to start the work week.

A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $2.60 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's an increase of 12 cents from a week ago. Gas prices remain significantly cheaper than last year at this time, when prices were averaging $3.72 per gallon.

Ohio's average remains below the nation's average, which was $2.71 per gallon on Monday.

The average national price of a regular gallon of gasoline has jumped in the past three weeks. Industry analyst Trilby Lundberg said Sunday that higher crude prices caused by a weaker U.S. dollar and strong gasoline demand drove the increase.
