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.
 
According to gasbuddy.com, the average price for a gallon of gas in Cincinnati is $2.63, three cents more than the state average.  The lowest price
for a gallon of gas in the metro area is $2.42 at the Marathon station at OH-28 and Allen Drive and Meijer at OH-28 near Bypass 28.
           
However, Ohio's average still 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.
