FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA Northeast’s February 17 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.44 per gallon.
Massachusetts’s price is 1 cent above the national average of $2.43.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 9 cents lower at $2.35 per gallon.
“Prices locally are already down 10 cents from just the start of the year,” said Mary Maguire, Director, Public and Legislative Affairs, in a media release. “Continued strong supplies and less, wintertime, demand, is a good sign for motorists heading into the second half of February.”
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 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.
