FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up two cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA’s August 6 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.84 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is two cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.86.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 55 cents lower at $2.29.
“With gasoline demand running high and supply running lower, we will likely see an end-of-summer pump price rally as inventories continue to tighten, especially on the East Coast,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 40 cents, from a low of $2.69 to a high of $3.09.
