FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up two cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA’s November 6 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.47 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is six cents below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.53.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 34 cents lower at $2.13.
“High demand and falling supply levels are keeping prices from dropping quickly following the post-hurricane spikes,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release. “Crude oil prices are also at 2017 highs, and at least in the short term, drivers will see it contribute to prices at the pump changing only slightly or in some cases increasing.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 35 cents, from a low of $2.29 to a high of $2.64.
AAA Northeast is a not-for-profit auto club with 62 offices in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire and New York, providing more than 5.2 million local AAA members with travel, insurance, finance, and auto-related services.
