BOSTON (WGGB/AP) — The price of a gallon of gas in Massachusetts has dropped by 8 cents in the past week, but the cost remains well above the national average.

AAA Southern New England reported Monday that self-serve, regular has fallen to an average of $3.58 per gallon, 7 cents more than the national average of $3.51.

In-state prices are now 6 cents per gallon lower than a month ago and 32 cents lower than at the same time last year.

AAA found self-serve, regular selling as low as $3.39 and as high as $3.79 per gallon.

AAA also reports that the national average price of gasoline will surpass $3 per gallon Tuesday for the 1,000th consecutive day for the first time on record.
