Gas Prices Fall 1 Cent in Massachusetts

HYANNIS – Gas prices in the Bay State have dropped a penny over the past week.

AAA Northeast reports that self-serve, regular unleaded gas is selling for an average of $2.83 per gallon in Massachusetts.

The price is two cents lower than the national average and 54 cents higher than the same time last year.

“Both locally and nationally, prices have been relatively flat over the last few weeks, suggesting that U.S. gasoline supply and demand are balancing,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs for AAA Northeast. “AAA will be watching to see if spikes in demand happen closer to Labor Day as motorists squeeze in those final road trips.”

According to, prices on Cape Cod are between $2.75 and $3.14 per gallon.
