GAS PRICES DOWN FOUR CENTS, SAYS AAA

Posted: August 13th, 2019

Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down four cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.

AAA’s August 13 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.64 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is the same as the national average for regular unleaded. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was nineteen cents higher at $2.83.  

“Domestic gasoline supplies soared to the highest level not seen in nearly five months, leading to price drops across much of the country,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “While demand is also up, it’s not enough to stay on pace with the huge jump in gasoline stocks.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 66 cents, from a low of $2.39 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:

Self Serve                                           Grade
