BOSTON — Although state gasoline prices remain 22 cents higher than just before Hurricane Harvey hit Houston in late August, they did not increase at all this week.AAA Northeast's survey of Massachusetts gas prices Monday found self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.48 per gallon, the same as last week. A year ago at this time, the average price was 37 cents lower at $2.11 per gallon."While prices locally have come down from the post-Harvey highs, increases in crude oil prices from OPEC production cuts along with solid demand throughout the fall have kept them from tumbling further and quicker," said AAA Northeast spokeswoman Mary Maguire.The range in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 48 cents, from a low of $2.31 per gallon to a high of $2.79.
