The price of gasoline in Massachusetts jumped seven cents last week according to the latest weekly survey from AAA-Northeast.
The April 23 survey of in-state prices finds self-serve regular unleaded averaging $2.67 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is nine cents below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.76.
Triple-A found a range in the price for unleaded regular of 46 cents, from a low of $2.53 to a high of $2.99.
Triple-A Northeast Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, Mary Maguire, says demand is at record levels for this time of year while inventories of oil and gas are down. The average price of $2.67 per gallon represents the highest in-state price since the summer of 2015.
