A recent survey of gas prices in Massachusetts show that the price of self-serve, regular unleaded is down six cents this week.
According to AAA Northeast, the self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline is averaging $2.50 per gallon — three cents below the national average. At this time in 2017, the average price was 32 cents lower at $2.18.
“Prices were dropping daily last week and the downturn looks to be as a result of quicker refinery maintenance turnarounds and a build in U.S. crude oil inventories and production,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 50 cents, from a low of $2.29 to a high of $2.79.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
Self Serve Grade
$2.50 ($2.29-$2.79) Regular Unleaded
$2.72 ($2.59-$2.99) Midgrade Unleaded
$2.92 ($2.79-$3.25) Premium Unleaded
$2.95 ($2.69-$3.06) Diesel
