AAA Southern New England reported Monday that the average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular was $3.56.

It’s the second straight week of rising prices after an identical nine cent per gallon increase the week before.

Massachusetts prices are also nine cents above the national average. But they’re 18 cents lower than the statewide average a year ago at this time.

The latest AAA survey found Massachusetts self-serve regular prices as low as $3.35 and as high as $3.89.
