COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Ohio motorists are paying a bit less at the pump to start the new work week.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.74 in Monday’s survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That’s 12 cents less than a week ago.

Monday’s Ohio price is about a dime lower than a month ago, but it’s about 21 cents higher than last year at this time.

The national average Monday was $3.68 per gallon. That’s a couple pennies more than a week ago.

Ohio averages range from $3.60 per gallon in Toledo to $3.80 in the Dayton area.

Analysts say unrest in Iraq has kept the price of crude oil higher.
