School’s Out! Gas Prices Are 67 Cents Higher Than Last Summer

FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are the same this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

AAA’s June 25 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.87 per gallon.

The Massachusetts price is three cents above the national average for regular unleaded of $2.84.

A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 67 cents lower at $2.20.

“An increase in crude oil production was announced at last week’s OPEC meeting, at least 600,000 barrels per day,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “It is yet to be determined whether or not the increase in production will be enough to dramatically reduce gasoline prices. In the U.S., pump prices will not immediately be impacted.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 37 cents, from a low of $2.72 to a high of $3.09.
