FRAMINGHAM – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham, off Route 9.
AAA Northeast’s June 29 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.06 per gallon.
Massachusetts’s price is eleven cents below the national average of $2.17.
A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 58 cents higher at $2.67 per gallon.
“While overall travel projections are down, those who head out for July 4th and beyond are expected to drive to their destinations,” said Mark Schieldrop, Public and Legislative Affairs Specialist, in a press release. “This increased demand is leading to higher gas prices, though motorists will still pay much less than they did a year ago.”
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 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.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
Self Serve Grade
$2.06 ($1.79-$2.39) Regular Unleaded
$2.24 ($2.09-$2.49) Midgrade Unleaded
$2.49 ($2.25-$2.99) Premium Unleaded
$2.62 ($2.19-$3.19) Diesel
