Massachusetts Gas Prices Remain Steady, Still Slightly Higher Than National Average

BOSTON (CBS) -- Gas prices have remained steady over the past week.

According to AAA, the average price for a gallon of gasoline in Massachusetts gas is currently $3.36 a gallon, as it was on January 19.

That's a dollar more than gas cost a year ago and 2 cents lower than it was a month ago.

AAA said the Massachusetts average gas price is 3 cents higher than the national average.

Despite typical low seasonal demand, the rising cost of crude oil is causing pump prices to go up. The national average for a gallon of gas has gone up 2 cents in the last week and 5 cents in the last month.
