BOSTON (AP) - Massachusetts gas prices have flattened out and remained steady in the past week after several weeks of steeps drops, AAA Northeast announced Monday.

The average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular remains unchanged at $1.90.

Even though that is 94 cents lower than the in-state average a year ago, it’s still 12 cents higher than the current national average.

Prices could start to rise again as the economy gets going after the coronavirus pandemic.

“As some states begin to re-open businesses, those states will likely see demand increase and pump prices will likely follow suit,” AAA spokeswoman Mary Maguire said in a statement.

AAA found a wide range of prices in Massachusetts, from a low of $1.44 for a gallon of regular, to a high of $2.39.
