Average per-gallon gas price in Massachusetts drops 11 cents
BOSTON (AP) — Gasoline prices are quickly approaching the $2 per gallon level in Massachusetts, AAA Northeast said Monday.
The average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular fell 11 cents in the past week to an average of $2.05, the organization said.
Massachusetts’ price is 4 cents higher than the national per-gallon average of $2.01. A year ago, the average price in Massachusetts was 48 cents higher.
The national price is expected to drop lower than $2 per gallon in the coming week, as demand diminishes because Americans are staying home amid the coronavirus pandemic and crude prices stay low.
AAA also found a wide range of prices for regular in Massachusetts from a low of $1.72 to a high of $2.75 per gallon.
