FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA’s July 2 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.84 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is one cent below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.85.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 66 cents lower at $2.18.
“Prices are at their highest point for Independence Day since 2014, but are still eight cents lower in Massachusetts than this past Memorial Day,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release. “That trend is good news for the almost 40 million Americans traveling this week.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 27 cents, from a low of $2.69 to a high of $2.96.
