Ohio drivers are paying slightly more at the pump as summer wraps up and students head back to school. 

The State’s average for a gallon of regular gas was $3.50 Monday, according to the survey from AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That’s up a $.05  from a week ago but down  $.24 , compared with a year ago.

Experts say falling unemployment claims and rising manufacturing are among signs that demand for oil in the world’s largest economy is gaining momentum.
