Massachusetts was one of 33 states across the country that didn’t see a rise in gasoline prices this week for the first time in more than two months.
According to AAA Northeast, self-serve, regular unleaded gasoline in Massachusetts is averaging $2.92 per gallon — two cents below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.94.
Last year at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 63 cents lower at $2.29.
“Continued growth in crude oil production is helping reduce crude prices as it signals that supply is growing alongside strong global crude demand,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “The spotlight will be on the June 22 OPEC meeting to see if countries like Saudi Arabia and Russia will be easing their supply reduction agreement before the end of the year.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 35 cents, from a low of $2.74 to a high of $3.09.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
Self Serve Grade
$2.92 ($2.74-$3.09) Regular Unleaded
$3.14 ($2.89-$3.31) Midgrade Unleaded
$3.30 ($2.99-$3.53) Premium Unleaded
$3.18 ($3.09-$3.39) Diesel
