Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down three cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s June 3 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.75 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is six cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.81. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was seventeen cents higher at $2.92.
“Gas prices have been trending lower now for the past month and there are no signs of pump prices changing gears toward more expensive for the summer season,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “One major indicator supporting this forecast is the price of crude oil, which dropped last week by $6 a barrel, one of the lowest prices of the year.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 39 cents, from a low of $2.60 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.
