Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up one cent this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s February 25 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.36 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is three cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.39. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was thirteen cents higher at $2.49.
“Higher pump prices in more than 40 states have been supported by an increase in demand and a reduced gasoline supply,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Refineries are also gearing up for spring gasoline production and maintenance season which also tightens supplies and could lead to higher prices.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 62 cents, from a low of $2.17 to a high of $2.79. 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:
