FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up one cent this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham on Route 9.
AAA’s July 15 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.70 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is nine cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.79.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was thirteen cents higher at $2.83.
“Gas prices over the last week increased for the majority of motorists east of the Mississippi,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release. “More expensive crude oil prices, robust demand, and decreasing gasoline supply all contributed to the higher prices.” Hurricane Barry appears to have had little impact on average prices across the country.
