Mass. gas prices rise to highest point since 2014

After a spike last week, Massachusetts gasoline prices rose to an average of $3.27 per gallon of regular unleaded on Monday, marking the state’s highest price in seven years, according to a report from Providence-based AAA Northeast.

The price is 9 cents higher than last week, 17 cents higher than the same week last month, and $1.17 more than October 2020's $2.10 per gallon price.

Massachusetts is 5 cents lower than the national average.

The main cause of such increases is a rise in crude oil prices, AAA said.

Gas prices haven’t been this high since October 2014, when they were $3.32 a gallon.
