Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down two cents this week, and are at the lowest point at this time of year since 2004, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s July 25th survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.14 per gallon. The Massachusetts price is two cents below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.16. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 50 cents higher at $2.64.
“We haven’t seen prices this low in late July since 2004,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Legislative Affairs. “The low prices are contributing to what looks to be a record summer travel season, with Americans flocking to the beaches, national parks, and a wide variety of destinations.”
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 54 cents, from a low of $1.95 to a high of $2.49. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every time.
Local gas prices and their ranges for July 25 are as follows:
Self Serve Grade
$2.14 ($1.95-$2.49) Regular Unleaded
$2.40 ($2.23-$2.79) Midgrade Unleaded
$2.57 ($2.29-$2.99) Premium Unleaded
$2.39 ($2.19-$3.09) Diesel
