Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down two cents from last week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s July 27th survey of prices in Massachusetts found self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.64 per gallon, down two cents from last week. Prices locally are 10 cents less than a month ago. The current price is seven cents less than the national average for self-serve unleaded of $2.71. A year ago at this time the Massachusetts average price was 94 cents higher at $3.58.
“The falling prices we’ve seen in recent weeks spell good news for vacationing motorists, who experienced the lowest July 4th prices we’d seen in 5 years, and can now benefit from mid-summer prices at the pump that continue to trend lower,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs for AAA Northeast.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 54 cents, from a low of $2.41 to a high of $2.95. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every trip, every time.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
Self Serve Grade
$2.649 ($2.419-$2.959) Regular Unleaded
$2.879 ($2.689-$3.199) Midgrade Unleaded
$3.049 ($2.799-$3.499) Premium Unleaded
$2.899 ($2.749-$3.699) Diesel
