Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down five cents this week, and fifteen cents over the last month, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s December 3 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.64 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is nineteen cents higher than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.45. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 16 cents lower at $2.48.
“Trends are indicating December might bring some of the cheapest gas prices of the year,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “As long as U.S. gasoline demand remains low and supplies plentiful, motorists can expect to save at the pump as long as the price of crude oil doesn’t spike.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 65 cents, from a low of $2.40 to a high of $3.05. 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.
