Gas Prices Hold Steady, Reports AAA

State average is $2.44/gallon...

Gasoline prices in Massachusetts remain the same this week, according to AAA Northeast.

AAA Northeast’s February 24 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.44 per gallon. Massachusetts’s price is 3 cents below the national average of $2.47. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 8 cents lower at $2.36 per gallon.

“Gasoline prices are likely to fluctuate in the coming weeks, but not drastically, as the winter driving season nears its end and refineries undergo maintenance,” said Mary Maguire, Director, Public and Legislative Affairs. “This is the typical trend this time of year.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 83 cents, from a low of $2.22 to a high of $3.05. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area. Please remember to slow down and move over for any emergency vehicles on the side of the road.
