Mass. gas prices soar 14 cents per gallon
BOSTON (AP) — Political tensions in Egypt and increased demand during the summer driving season have driven up the cost of gas in Massachusetts by 14 cents per gallon.
AAA Southern New England reports Monday that self-serve, regular has jumped to $3.62 per gallon in the past week and prices are likely to go even higher.
The in-state price is a penny more than the national average and 15 cents higher than at the same time last year.
AAA found self-serve, regular selling as low as $3.48 per gallon and as high as $3.85.
