AAA: Statewide average $3.87 on Monday


COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohioans are paying about a nickel more per gallon for gas compared with a week ago.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.87 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. Monday's Ohio price is about 16 cents higher than a month ago, and it's about 8 cents higher than last year at this time.

Locally, Zanesville has the lowest prices at the pump, at $3.75 per-gallon. Caldwell's reported low is $3.76, with Barnesville at $3.77 a-gallon. Cambridge's price at the pump is hovering around $3.82.

The national average Monday was $3.66 per gallon. That's a penny more than a week ago, and 2 cents higher than a month ago.

Analysts say unrest in Iraq has driven up the price in crude oil.
