FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up one cent this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s July 17 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.18 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is seven cents below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.25.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was two cents lower at $2.16.
“This small price increase follows a period of solid demand and some declines in the glut of crude oil that have kept prices low so far this summer,” 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 36 cents, from a low of $2.05 to a high of $2.41.
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.
