Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down one cent this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s September 24 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.83 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is two cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.85. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 21 cents lower at $2.62.
“Motorists in more than half the country are seeing cheaper or stable gas prices at the start of the workweek,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Supply and demand are in sync as the Fall begins, though recent increases in crude oil will bear watching over the coming weeks.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 40 cents, from a low of $2.69 to a high of $3.09. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every time.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
$2.83 ($2.69-$3.09) Regular Unleaded
