Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up five cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s May 6 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.84 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is five cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.89. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was eight cents lower at $2.76.
“While fuel demand remains robust, gasoline inventories built for the first time since early February and contributed to more modest increases than we saw the week before when prices were up double digits,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 53 cents, from a low of $2.62 to a high of $3.15. 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.
