Mass. gas prices shoot up by 7 cents per gallon

Posted: Updated:

BOSTON (AP) - The price of a gallon of gas in Massachusetts has shot up by 7 cents in the past week.

AAA Southern New England said Monday that its weekly survey found a gallon of self-serve regular selling for an average of $3.35 per gallon.

That's 7 cents above the national average and a penny higher than a month ago, but still 21 cents lower than at the same time last year.

AAA found self-serve regular selling as low as $3.20 per gallon in Massachusetts and as high as $3.55.
