FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham off Route 9.
AAA’s July 16 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.83 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is four cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.87.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 65 cents lower at $2.18.
“An increase in gasoline inventories in the northeast has helped keep prices stable in states throughout the region,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a media release.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 38 cents, from a low of $2.61 to a high of $2.99.
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.
