Gas in Massachusetts up 2 cents per gallon
BOSTON (AP) — The average price of a gallon of gasoline in Massachusetts is up 2 cents, AAA Northeast reported Monday.
Self-serve, regular is now selling for an average of $2.54 per gallon, according to the organization’s latest price survey. That is 4 cents lower than the national average of $2.58, but a nickel higher than the average price in Massachusetts a year ago.
“Crude oil prices are moving higher following the death of Iran’s top military leader, and was to be expected,” AAA spokeswoman Mary Maguire said.
Massachusetts prices varied widely, from a low of $2.32 per gallon for regular, to a high of $3.05.
