Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down three cents this week — averaging $2.83 per gallon, according to a recent survey by AAA Northeast.
The Massachusetts price is four cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.87. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 65 cents lower at $2.18.
“An increase in gasoline inventories in the northeast has helped keep prices stable in states throughout the region,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 38 cents, from a low of $2.61 to a high of $2.99.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
