Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up one cent from last week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s July 6th survey of prices in Massachusetts found self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.75 per gallon, up one cent from last week. Prices locally are nine cents higher than a month ago. The current price is one cent less than the national average for self serve unleaded of $2.76. A year ago at this time the Massachusetts average price was 92 cents higher at $3.67.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 45 cents, from a low of $2.54 to a high of $2.99. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every trip, every time.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
Self Serve Grade
$2.759 ($2.549-$2.999) Regular Unleaded
