Massachusetts Gasoline Prices Climbing
After falling through most of the Spring, gasoline prices are going up once again in Massachusetts.. WAMC’s Paul Tuthill reports.
Gasoline prices have shot up 9 cents per gallon in the past week in Massachusetts according to the latest price survey by Triple A of Southern New England. It was the second consecutive week the survey found an increase in the average price of gasoline at service stations. The average price for self serve regular unleaded is $3.47. That’s’ 24 cents lower than at this time a year ago. Analysts say gasoline prices are increasing as the price of crude oil is climbing from the lows the commodity hit in June.
