Monday's Ohio price is about 4 cents lower than a month ago, and just a penny lower than last year at this time.

The national average Monday was identical to the Ohio average at 3.56 per gallon. That's up 3 cents from last week, and 11 cents higher than a month ago.

Analysts say ongoing seasonal maintenance at refineries and concerns over simmering tensions in the Ukraine have been keeping prices up.
