The following is a press release from AAA Northeast.
FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA’s June 24 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.64 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is two cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.66.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 23 cents higher at $2.87.
“Filling-up at the pump this summer could mean savings as much as a quarter a gallon,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Cheaper prices could entice motorists to travel more and even take some last minute road trips.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 63 cents, from a low of $2.42 to a high of $3.05.
AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every time.
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.
