Massachusetts’s price is seven cents above the national average of $1.92.

A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 56 cents higher at $2.55 per gallon.

“This week, market analysts are watching crude oil prices, which started to increase at the end of last week,” said Mary Maguire, Director, Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release.“However, given the low demand, increases in crude aren’t likely to have an impact on gas prices in the near-term.”
