Monday's Ohio price is about 16 cents higher than a month ago, and it's about 8 cents higher than last year at this time.

The national average Monday was $3.66 per gallon. That's a penny more than a week ago, and 2 cents higher than a month ago.

Analysts say unrest in Iraq has driven up the price in crude oil.
