Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up two cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s August 6 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.84 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is two cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.86. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 55 cents lower at $2.29.
“With gasoline demand running high and supply running lower, we will likely see an end-of-summer pump price rally as inventories continue to tighten, especially on the East Coast,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 40 cents, from a low of $2.69 to a high of $3.09. 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.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
