Gas Price Inch Up 1 Cent in Massachusetts

Pay at the Pump

HYANNIS – Gas prices are up a penny this week in Massachusetts.

AAA Northeast reports that the average price of self-serve, regular is up to $2.76 per gallon.

The price is five cents below the national average and 47 cents higher than the same time last year.

According to GasBuddy.com, prices on Cape Cod range from $2.77 to $2.95 per gallon.

“Crude oil prices are topping 70 dollars a barrel this morning, and pushing up prices at the pump once again,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast’s director of public and legislative affairs. “Rising crude prices, combined with geopolitical tensions that raise concerns about the supply of oil and energy products, are putting upward pressure on the market.”
