FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts remain the same this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham
AAA’s March 12 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.50 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is three cents below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.53.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 35 cents lower at $2.15.
“The majority of motorists in the country are paying less at the pump than they did a week ago,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Factors contributing to flat prices locally include increased gasoline production that has kept pace with higher than usual demand this winter.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 44 cents, from a low of $2.35 to a high of $2.79.
AAA Northeast is a not-for-profit auto club with 65 offices in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire and New York, providing more than 5.7 million local AAA members with travel, insurance, finance, and auto-related services.
