Ohio motorists are paying more for gas this week. A gallon of regular gas is listed at about $3.68 in Monday’s survey from Auto Club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s 12 cents higher than last Monday’s average. Experts say a better than expected jobs report last week and other factors pointed to growth, which pushed oil prices higher. The Ohio prices this week is 16 cents higher than the national average. The state average is a dime higher than this time last month – but a dime lower than at the same time in 2012. The lowest average price in the state is about $3.63 in the Akron and Canton areas.
