FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts remain unchanged this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
AAA Northeast’s June 15 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.01 per gallon.
Massachusetts’s price is nine cents below the national average of $2.10.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 66 cents higher at $2.67 per gallon.
“As Americans drive more, they are boosting gasoline demand, and that increased demand is generally lifting pump prices,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director, Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release.
“Higher demand will continue to push up gas prices in the coming weeks, but the numbers aren’t going to spike as high as they typically do in summer. That’s because demand won’t be sufficient enough to drive down stock levels, and we have a robust supply right now,” said Maguire.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 60 cents, from a low of $1.79 to a high of $2.39.
AAA Northeast is a not-for-profit auto club with 62 offices in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Jersey, New Hampshire and New York, providing more than 5.7 million local AAA members with travel, insurance, finance, and auto-related services.
