AAA: Gas Prices Down 21 Cents Since September

FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down two cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham

The price has now fallen 21 cents from its post-hurricane spike in September.

 

AAA’s October 23 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.49 per gallon.

The Massachusetts price is 3 cents above the national average for regular unleaded of $2.46.

A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 35 cents lower at $2.14.

“Despite recent declines, the remnants of last month’s hurricanes linger,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release. “Drivers are paying some 35 cents more for a gallon of gasoline than they did at the same time in 2016.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 50 cents, from a low of $2.29 to a high of $2.79.
