As locals gear up for Labor Day weekened, local gas prices continue to creep up.
According to AAA Southern New England, the average price of a gallon of gas in Massachusetts is currently $3.79, up 20 cents from last month. That's, on average, a few cents less than what motorists are paying in Connecticut and Rhode Island, but about the same than what they're paying up in New Hampsire.
Here in Concord, Friday's
prices at the pump ranged from $3.80 to $3.89 for a gallon or regular, according to Mapquest.
The local spike is not as bad as the national average, which has seen an increase of 32 cents per gallon this past month.
According to AAA, gas prices should go down after Labor Day.
