Gas prices fall for tenth consecutive week

Gas prices in Boston and Rhode Island have fallen for the tenth consecutive week to the lowest price in seven years.
   
AAA Northeast says its weekly survey released Monday found that the average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular gas fell five cents from last week, to $1.82.
   
AAA says prices haven’t been that low since January 2009.
   
The price is 37 cents lower than it was a year ago, when it was $2.19 per gallon.
   
AAA found that self-serve, regular is selling for as low as $1.71 per gallon and as high as $1.94.
   
Gas in Rhode Island is still eight cents per gallon higher than the national average of $1.74.
   
AAA says the strong global and domestic supply of crude oil and gasoline is keeping prices low.
