COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Gas prices in Ohio are higher to start the post-holiday work week.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.81 in Tuesday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's up 11 cents from a week ago.

Tuesday's Ohio price is about 4 cents higher than a month ago, and it's 11 cents higher last year at this time.

The national average Tuesday was $3.65 per gallon. That's about the same as a week ago, and a nickel less than a month ago.

Analysts still expect prices to drop at a moderate rate into the summer, due to ample U.S. crude oil stocks and other factors.
