COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — Gas prices in Ohio are a couple of cents higher than a week ago and 15 cents higher than a month ago.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was $2.19 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's up from $2.17 a week ago and $2.04 the same time last month.

The average price in Ohio a year ago was $2.42.

The national average price Monday was $2.22, up six cents from a week ago and eight cents the same time last month. The average national price a year ago was $2.49.

Pump prices have been driven by crude oil prices surging more than 20 percent in August and refinery issues impacting production in some regions.
