FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA’s June 11 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.89 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is three cents below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.92.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 63 cents lower at $2.26.
“Gas prices are falling across the country, while remaining more expensive than they were a year ago,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a media release.
“The higher prices in recent weeks seem to be influencing driving habits. While consumer gasoline demand remains strong, it is slowing and not growing,” said Maguire.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 34 cents, from a low of $2.72 to a high of $3.06.
AAA Northeast is a not-for-profit auto club with 66 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.
