NEW: Gas Prices Rise Again in Massachusetts
Monday, April 16, 2012
It is the fifth straight week gas prices have headed north.
An April 16 AAA survey of gas prices in Massachusetts revealed an average price for self-serve regular unleaded of $3.89 per gallon, up 2 cents over last week and 16 cents higher than last month at the same time.
Even with the steady increases, however, the Bay State remains 1 cent below the national average of $3.90 per gallon for self-serve unleaded. That may not console motorists, however, given that the average price in Massachusetts a year ago at this time was $3.66 per gallon.
The average price for a gallon of midgrade unleaded is $4.03, according to AAA. Premium unleaded is averaging $4.15 per gallon, while diesel is at $4.21.
The price range for unleaded regular gasoline in Massachusetts this month is 21 cents, from $3.78 to $3.99.
