Gas prices in Mass. remain the same
BOSTON (AP) — The price of gas in Massachusetts has not changed this week.
AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey of prices released Monday that self-serve, regular is averaging $2.70 per gallon, the same as last week.
That price is three cents above the national average of $2.67. The average price a year ago at this time in Massachusetts was $2.10.
AAA found regular selling for as low as $2.45 and as high as $2.84 per gallon.
AAA says there was a drop in regional gas supplies last week, reflecting a tighter supply due to those refineries remaining offline after Hurricane Harvey. Officials expect prices to go down later this month as pipelines and refineries resume their full operations.
