Ohio drivers are paying about the same at the gas pump this week as last.

The average price for a gallon of regular gas was $3.74 in Monday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express.
That's the same as a week ago.
Ohio motorists have seen continuously rising prices this summer due to problems with refineries and pipelines in the West Coast and Midwest.
The average gas price in Ohio is 20 cents more than a year ago.
Nationally, the average price for regular gas is about $3.72, just about 2 cents higher than last week.
The national average last year at this time was about $3.58.
