Ohioans are paying 4 cents more per gallon for gas than they were last week and almost a dollar more than last year.

Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express shows regular-grade gasoline is averaging $3.68 a gallon statewide, compared to $3.64 last week and $2.71 last year at this time.

The record high for regular gasoline was $4.16 in May of this year.

Fuel prices rose as recent storms impacted refineries on the East Coast, and now-tropical storm Lee has caused oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico to halt production.
