Gas Jumps Five Cents From a Week Ago

You had to dig a little deeper at the pump last week.

AAA Northeast says its weekly survey on Monday found the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded jumped five cents, to $2.48 per gallon.

That's a penny less than the national average .

But it's still 19 cents higher than at this time last year in the Bay State, when prices were averaging $2.29.

AAA spokeswoman Mary Maguire says crude oil prices at the end of 2017 were the highest at the end of the year since 2013. Cold weather played a role with more crude needed for production of home heating oil.

Triple-A found a range in the price of unleaded regular of 48 cents, from a low of $2.31 to a high of $2.79
