AAA: Gas Prices Up 2 Cents

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

AAA’s July 9 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.86 per gallon.

The Massachusetts price is the same as the national average for regular unleaded of $2.86.

A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 69 cents lower at $2.17.

“Demand for gasoline this summer has remained strong and pump prices have been relatively stable,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a media release. “Motorists should be mindful of the fact that hurricane season is underway, and storm-related supply issues could translate into higher prices.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 27 cents, from a low of $2.72 to a high of $2.99
