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

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.
