 by TWIW StaffMarch 26, 2019

Gas prices in Massachusetts are up six cents this week, according to AAA Northeast.

Over the last six weeks, prices locally have jumped 16 cents per gallon. The cheapest gas in Worcester has jumped ten cents from $2.27 per gallon to $2.37 per gallon this week for regular unleaded.

AAA’s March 25 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.50 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is 12 cents lower than the national average for regular unleaded of $2.62.

The average price in Massachusetts is the same as it was one year ago.

“Thanks to increasing demand and tightening gasoline stocks across the country, March gas prices came in like a lion and will not go out like a lamb,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “State gas price averages are similar to a year ago give or take a few pennies, with every state but Florida seeing higher prices this week.”

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 74 cents, from a low of $2.31 to a high of $3.05.

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

Self Serve                                        Grade                        

$2.50 ($2.31-$3.05)                         Regular Unleaded
