AAA Reports Gas Prices Up by Two Cents

Average price for regular unleaded is $2.82/gallon

Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up two cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.

AAA’s July 30 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.82 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is three cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.85. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 58 cents lower at $2.24.  

“U.S. gasoline demand strengthened and supply declined over the last week, leading to slightly higher average prices both locally and across the country,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “If crude and gasoline inventories continue to tighten, prices at the pump will remain volatile throughout the northeast.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 38 cents, from a low of $2.61 to a high of $2.99. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every time.
