Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down two cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s November 26 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.69 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is fourteen cents higher than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.55. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 21 cents lower at $2.48.
“The value of a barrel of oil has tumbled roughly 30 percent in the last 7 weeks, hitting its lowest price point in more than a year,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “That dramatic plunge is pushing down the prices at the pump, providing an early holiday gift to consumers. December may bring some of the cheapest gas prices of 2018.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 65 cents, from a low of $2.44 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.
