AAA: Massachusetts Gas Prices Are 6 Cents Lower Than National Average

FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts remain the same this week, according to AAA Northeast, which as an office in Framingham.

AAA’s July 22 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.70 per gallon.

The Massachusetts price is six cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.76.

A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 10 cents higher at $2.80. 

“Gasoline stocks remain robust amid a recent dip in demand, which could be one reason we are seeing pump prices stable or starting to roll back,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a media statement. “It is too soon to know if this is a long-term trend, but it is certainly a welcome relief for motorists.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 52 cents, from a low of $2.53 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.
