Mass. Gas Prices Up For 10th Consecutive Week

BOSTON (AP) — The cost of a gallon of gas in Massachusetts is following the national trend and rising dramatically.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Karen Twomey reports.

AAA Southern New England announced Monday that self-serve, regular jumped eight cents in the past week to an average of $3.68 per gallon. It was the tenth consecutive week of higher prices.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Fausto Menard spoke to AAA’s Mary Maguire about the recent spike:

The latest price is a penny below the national average for the same grade, 21 cents more than a month ago and 38 cents more than at the same time last year.

AAA found self-serve, regular as low as $3.56 and as high as $3.91.

    and there’s no reason for the price hike.the weather is decent,no cold or major storm l mean.other than the speculators setting the price oil high cause they can.yes iran and some middle eastern countries are up to shinanagins,but it shouldn’t effect us this bad.and l can’t put all the blame on the oil companies.l’d like too,but l can’t.this is exactly what caused the economy to tank in 2008.not the housing market.people were put there pay check in the tank instead of inventing or traveling or whatever.plus remember if diesel goes up,everything else goes up to.the world runs on diesel,and alot of it.the truck l run uses a round 80 gallons every day,at $4 a gallon thats,$1600 dollars a week.theirs not much profit in that,is there..
