FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down five more cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham, off Route 9.
AAA’s January 14 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.44 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is 20 cents higher than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.24.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was seven cents higher at $2.51.
“The price of crude oil has been slowly increasing this year, but unlike some parts of the country the impact has yet to be felt locally by motorists at the pump,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press statement.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 86 cents, from a low of $2.19 to a high of $3.05.
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.
