Mass. Gas Prices Jump 8 Cents in the Past Week

It's the seventh week that gas prices in Massachusetts have increased.

The price of gasoline in Massachusetts has risen for the seventh consecutive week.

AAA Northeast's weekly price survey released Monday found self-serve, regular selling for an average of $2.08 per gallon, 8 cents more than last week.

The price is 3 cents per gallon lower than the national average and 38 cents lower than it was in Massachusetts a year ago.

Self-serve, regular was found selling for as low as $1.91 per gallon and as high as $2.29.

AAA attributes the higher prices to increased demand, declining refinery production and rising crude costs.
