Gas prices rise 3 cents per gallon to $2.53 in Massachusetts

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - The price of gasoline in Massachusetts is up three cents this week.

AAA Northeast said Monday in its weekly survey that self-serve regular is averaging $2.53 per gallon. That's eight cents below the national average of $2.61 per gallon.

The average price of gasoline in Massachusetts is 34 cents higher than it was at this time last year, when it sold for $2.19 per gallon.

AAA found gas selling for as low as $2.45 per gallon and as high as $2.79 in Massachusetts.

AAA says strong consumer demand coupled with steadily rising oil prices means filling up will continue to cost more in February.
