The average retail gas price in Cleveland rose 10.1 cents a gallon in the past week and Akron saw a 16 cent rise, according to GasBuddy Monday.

“Kentucky, Indiana, Illinois, Ohio and Michigan saw their respective state averages increase from 5 to 10 cents per gallon in recent days; impacted by an unplanned outage at Detroit’s Marathon refinery and a jump in Chicago wholesale which closed the week at the highest price level in the country," GasBuddy analyst Gregg Laskoski said.

The national average increased 3.9 cents per gallon in the last week.
 
The average price Monday was $2.55 a gallon in Cleveland and $2.59 in Akron, compared to the average price across the United States at 2.36.
