COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) -- Ohio motorists are seeing higher gas prices, with some stations around the state flirting with $4 a gallon.

The cost for a gallon of regular gas in Ohio was averaging $3.93 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and WEX Inc. That's a dime higher than a week ago.

Monday's Ohio price is about 23 cents higher than a month ago, and it's 30 cents higher than last year at this time.

The national average Tuesday was $3.67 per gallon. That's a penny higher than a week ago, but 2 cents less than a month ago.

Ohio averages ranged from $3.77 in the Youngstown area to $3.97 in the Columbus and Cincinnati areas.
