GAS PRICES DOWN ONE CENT, SAYS AAA

Posted: February 4th, 2019

Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down one cent this week, and have fallen every week since late October of last year, according to AAA Northeast.

AAA’s February 4 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.39 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is fourteen cents higher than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.25. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was fourteen cents higher at $2.53.  

“Increased demand, likely due to consumers filling up ahead of the cold weather, continues to be offset locally by strong supplies of gasoline,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs.

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 90 cents, from a low of $2.15 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                        

$2.39 ($2.15-$3.05)                            Regular Unleaded                  

$2.71 ($2.51-$3.09)                            Midgrade Unleaded               

$2.92 ($2.71-$3.29)                            Premium Unleaded
