BOSTON (AP) — The price of a gallon of gas in Massachusetts has shot up by 7 cents in the past week, but still remains well below the national average.

AAA Southern New England reports Monday that self-serve, regular has risen to $3.60 per gallon.

That’s 7 cents less than the current national average, 8 cents higher than the in-state price a month ago and 16 cents higher than the in-state price at this time last year.

AAA found regular, self-serve selling as low as $3.43 per gallon and as high as $3.79.
