BOSTON — Massachusetts gas prices are holding steady this week, and haven’t decreased much since the post-Hurricane Harvey surge.
AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey released Monday that the price of self-serve, regular is averaging $2.48 per gallon, the same as last week.
The average price is the same as the national average of $2.48. It’s 37 cents higher than the price in Massachusetts was a year ago at this time— $2.11 per gallon.
AAA found self-serve, regular gasoline selling for as low as $2.31 per gallon and as high as $2.79 in Massachusetts.
AAA says while prices have come down since the post-hurricane spike in September, increases in crude oil prices and solid demand throughout the fall have kept them from declining further and quicker.
