standing gas pump

BOSTON (AP) — Gas prices in Massachusetts and Rhode Island remain below the current national average following the Independence Day holiday.

AAA Northeast said Monday its weekly survey of prices found self-serve regular averaging $2.69 cents per gallon in both states. In Massachusetts, the average price went up 2 cents from a week ago, while it was down a penny in the last week in Rhode Island.

The current national average is $2.75 per gallon.

Mary Maguire of AAA Northeast says summer motorists are also benefiting from gas prices that are well below where they stood a year ago at this time.
