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

AAA Northeast’s April 20 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $1.94 per gallon.

Massachusetts’s price is thirteen cents above the national average of $1.81.

A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 75 cents higher at $2.69 per gallon.

“As oil inventories continue to grow around the globe and crude demand falls worldwide, crude prices have dropped dramatically as the public health, economic, and financial impact of COVID-19 increases. Crude prices will likely remain volatile this week, as the market continues to assess how low crude prices could fall during the ongoing pandemic,” said Mary Maguire, Director, Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release.

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is $1.02, from a low of $1.57 to a high of $2.59.

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.
