FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up two cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA Northeast’s December 2 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.51 per gallon.
Massachusetts’s price is 7 cents below the national average of $2.58.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 13 cents higher at $2.64 per gallon.
“Despite minimal increases, prices locally continue to be lower than they were at this same time last year,” said Mary Maguire, Director, Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release. “That’s good news for holiday shoppers and those planning trips to be with family and friends.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 83 cents, from a low of $2.26 to a high of $3.09.
AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area.
Please remember to slow down and move over for any emergency vehicles on the side of the road.
