Jul. 17, 2017
BOSTON (AP) — Gas prices in Massachusetts are up by one penny.
AAA Northeast said Monday that the price of self-serve, regular is averaging $2.18 per gallon. That's seven cents below the national average of $2.25.
The price of self-serve, regular was averaging $2.16 a year ago at this time.
AAA found self-serve, regular selling for as low as $2.05 and as high as $2.41 per gallon.
AAA officials say the increase follows a period of "solid demand and some declines in the glut of crude oil" that have kept prices low this summer.
