BOSTON – Experts think the situation is escalating conflict in the Middle East will increase gas prices. But they say there are other reasons you may have to pay more to get gas in Massachusetts in the coming months.

According to AAA, gas stations will soon switch to summer blend fuel.

That gas is better for the environment in warmer weather. But it also costs more to make.

Gas prices in Massachusetts rose about 5 cents over the past week, to about $3.37 per gallon.

“Oil prices took a bit of a breather last week, dropping about one percent, but it could just be a lull on the way to higher prices,” said Mark Schieldrop, senior spokesperson for AAA Northeast. “Escalating geopolitical tensions in the Middle East and expectations for strong seasonal gasoline demand could push markets higher.”
