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

AAA’s December 10 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.62 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is twenty cents higher than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.42. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 13 cents lower at $2.49.  

“With many motorists planning holiday road trips, the drop in pump prices couldn’t come at a better time,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “In every state, gas prices have dropped by double digits month over month, and AAA expects the national gas prices average to dip as low as $2.40 by year’s end due to cheaper crude oil prices.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 70 cents, from a low of $2.39 to a high of $3.09.

Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:

Self Serve                                        Grade                        

$2.62 ($2.39-$3.09)                         Regular Unleaded                  

$2.89 ($2.52-$3.49)                         Midgrade Unleaded               

$3.08 ($2.83-$3.59)                         Premium Unleaded                

$3.13 ($2.87-$3.39)                         Diesel
