CLEVELAND (AP) - Ohio motorists are grumbling as gas prices begin to hover around $4 a gallon.

Rising oil prices amid fears about refinery problems in the Great Lakes have pushed pump prices up over the dreaded $4 mark at some stations across the state.

According to auto club AAA, the state average for a gallon of regular gas was $3.93 on Thursday, an increase of 9 cents from Wednesday. And it's 27 cents higher than a week ago.

An analyst tells The (Cleveland) Plain Dealer the supply of gasoline has been unstable in the Great Lakes region, where two large refineries are either partly shut or fully shut down for maintenance.

The national average Thursday was $3.63, up just 2 cents from a week ago.
