BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — After a steady months-long slide, gas prices are finally rising in Massachusetts. Gas reached a peak here of about $5.05 a gallon on average on June 12 according to AAA, and its been all downhill from there.
Average prices are now sitting at $3.51 a gallon, up from Wednesday's average of about $3.49. National gas prices have been rising since late September, but Massachusetts prices had shown signs of a continued decrease.
Massachusetts prices are still well under the national average, which has shot up to about $3.87 as of Thursday.
AAA says a tighter national gas supply is one of the issues.
Bristol and Franklin counties have the cheapest places to buy gas in Massachusetts, with places on the South Coast like Seekonk offering the cheapest gallon.
