Ohio motorists will be paying more at the pump to start the work week.  The cost for a gallon of regular gas is averaging $3.65 in Monday’s survey from Auto Club AAA.  That’s about 7 cents higher than last Monday.  Today’s price is 31 cents higher than a month ago, but is a few cents lower than last year at this time.  The National Average is about $3.52 per gallon, which is up 3 cents from last week, and 18 cents higher than a month ago.  Analysts say the national average prices has been rising due to ongoing seasonal maintenance at refineries and concerns over simmering tensions in the Ukraine.
