Gas prices in Ohio are up a few cents to start the work week.

Ohio's average is lower than the national average, which was $3.10 Monday. That's a dime less than a week ago and about a quarter less than a month ago.

Among Ohio's metropolitan areas, the Youngstown area has the lowest average at about $3.02 per gallon.

Analysts say gas prices will likely remain low amid decreased demand and lower crude oil prices.
