Self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline is averaging $2.76 per gallon across Massachusetts — up one cent from last week.

According to a survey of gas prices in Massachusetts by AAA Northeast, the state’s gas price is still five cents below the national average, but 47 cents higher than prices this time last year.

“Crude oil prices are topping 70 dollars a barrel this morning, and pushing up prices at the pump once again,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Rising crude prices, combined with geopolitical tensions that raise concerns about the supply of oil and energy products, are putting upward pressure on the market.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 32 cents, from a low of $2.67 to a high of $2.99.

Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:

Self Serve                                        Grade                        

$2.76 ($2.67-$2.99)                         Regular Unleaded                  

$2.95 ($2.79-$3.09)                         Midgrade Unleaded               

$3.12 ($2.95-$3.39)                         Premium Unleaded                

$3.08 ($2.95-$3.29)                         Diesel
