BOSTON (AP) — The average price of a gallon of gas in Massachusetts has inched up another 2 cents.
AAA Northeast said Tuesday that self-serve, regular is now selling for an average of $2.22 per gallon.
That’s 7 cents per gallon below the national average but 24 cents higher than the average Bay State price a year ago.
According to GasBuddy.com, gas on Cape Cod ranges from a low of $2.11 per gallon to a high of $2.49 per gallon.
AAA found a range of 28 cents for self-serve, regular from a low of $2.11 per gallon to a high of $2.39.
AAA says prices in the new year will depend greatly on whether OPEC and their partnering countries stick to a recent agreement to limit crude oil production by 1.8 million barrels per day beginning in January.
