Massachusetts gas prices rose by another four cents last week. That makes for a 31-cent hike in the past month.

Self-serve-regular now averages $3.77. That's close to the national average, but nine cents more than this time last year. The most recent analytics show that while prices are on the rise, they are slowing, which means we could see them come to a stop.

So can we see them getting lower? Possibly, but not anytime soon. The Philly.com says that the reason that we see gas prices rise this time of year is because they are switching over production from winter formula, to summer formula. Perhaps after that change, we'll see a drop.
