BOSTON — The average price of a gallon of gasoline in Massachusetts has jumped 3 cents in the past week.
AAA Northeast reports Monday that self-serve, regular now sells for an average of $2.24 per gallon.
That is 8 cents per gallon lower than the current national average but 16 cents higher than the Massachusetts price one year ago.
AAA found regular selling for as low as $2.07 and as high as $2.44 per gallon.
AAA says higher crude oil prices and strong demand have pushed prices at the pump higher.
