Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down four cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s June 10 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.71 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is three cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.74. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was eighteen cents higher at $2.89.
“Refinery utilization in the United States is at its highest level since early January, resulting in supplies at healthy levels to meet robust consumer demand,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “Prices are dropping due to cheaper crude oil and at the same time U.S. supply is keeping pace with demand. The national average is poised to fall to at least $2.70 this week – an indication that pump prices may be even cheaper this summer.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 52 cents, from a low of $2.53 to a high of $3.05. 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:
$2.71 ($2.53-$3.05) Regular Unleaded
