Gas prices up slightly heading into holiday weekend
BOSTON (AP) — Motorists traveling over the Labor Day weekend in Massachusetts will be paying a bit more for gas.
AAA Northeast said Monday its latest survey finds self-serve regular selling for an average of $2.84 per gallon in Massachusetts, 2 cents higher than a week ago and 1 cent above the current U.S. average.
AAA’s director of public and legislative affairs, Mary Maguire, says the increase in gas prices probably won’t last much after the upcoming holiday weekend.
A year ago at this time, the average price for self-serve regular was $2.26. That’s 58 cents lower than the current average.
