COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - The big drop in gas prices in Ohio didn't last long.
A gallon of regular gas in Ohio was listed at an average of about $3.65 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's 27 cents higher than last Monday's average of $3.38.
The Ohio price this week is 13 cents higher than the national average of $3.52.
The state average is about a dime lower than this time last month, and 6 cents lower than at the same time in 2012.
Analysts say they typically expect to see a spike in gas prices as the summer driving season approaches.
The lowest average price in the state Monday was about $3.58 in Youngstown and Warren.
