COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Gas prices in Ohio are up slightly to start the Christmas week.
The average price for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was $3.23 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. That's 9 cents higher than a week ago, but it's still 31 cents cheaper than this time last month.
Prices inched up after some areas of Ohio saw pump numbers fall below the $3-per-gallon mark briefly the week before Christmas. On Monday, Dayton and Toledo had the lowest prices, with both areas averaging $3.20.
The national average Monday was $3.25, about the same as last week.
Gas prices are expected to stay lower through December, thanks to lower demand and higher inventories.
