Massachusetts Gas Prices Down a Penny, Hurricane May Cause Increase

HYANNIS – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts have fallen one cent over the past week.

AAA Northeast reports that the average price of self-serve, regular unleaded is $2.83 per gallon in the Bay State.

That price is a penny below the national average and 13 cents higher than the same time last year.

“Prices at the pump in our area are stable or dropping slightly, as predicted post Labor Day,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs for AAA Northeast. “But Hurricane Florence, which is bearing down on South Carolina and Virginia, will likely have an impact on East Coast gas prices this week if the storm follows its projected path.”

According to, prices on Cape Cod are between $2.69 and $3.14.
