Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up one cent this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s September 17 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.84 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is a penny lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.85. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 19 cents lower at $2.65.
“Hurricane Florence had little to no impact on gas prices,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Gas prices have not seen much movement because unlike the Gulf Coast, which is home to dozens of refineries, the Carolinas house only pipelines and terminals. This means U.S. crude processing is not impacted and neither are gas prices nationally.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 45 cents, from a low of $2.64 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:
$2.84 ($2.64-$3.09) Regular Unleaded
$3.08 ($2.79-$3.36) Midgrade Unleaded
$3.24 ($3.05-$3.57) Premium Unleaded
$3.15 ($2.93-$3.39) Diesel
