Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down one cent this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s January 28 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.40 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is fourteen cents higher than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.26. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was ten cents higher at $2.50.
“While half the country saw price increases last week, states in the northeast continue to see small but steady price decreases,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Gasoline supplies here are very strong and have been able to offset any rises in the price of oil or increased consumer demand.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 88 cents, from a low of $2.17 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.
