Massachusetts gas prices on the rise
BOSTON (AP) — The cost of a gallon of gasoline in Massachusetts is on the rise, but remains well below the national average.
AAA Northeast reported Monday that its weekly survey found self-serve, regular selling for an average of $2.09 per gallon, up 3 cents from last week.
That’s 13 cents lower than the national average and 87 cents per gallon lower than the Bay State price a year ago.
AAA found self-serve, regular selling for as little as $1.94 per gallon and as high as $2.49.
A AAA spokeswoman said oil prices moved higher last week due to reports of supply disruptions in a few oil-producing countries, but a strong supply of global oil will keep prices low for the Thanksgiving travel season.
