Massachusetts Gas Prices Up Another Nickel

HYANNIS – Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up another nickel.

AAA Northeast reports that the average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular went up another five cents over the past to $2.92.

The Bay State price is four cents below the national average and 61 cents higher than the same time last year.

According to GasBuddy.com, prices on Cape Cod range from $2.85 to $3.10 per gallon.

“At the start of the holiday weekend, reports indicated that OPEC may raise production levels to help ease global supply concerns,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Legislative Affairs for AAA Northeast. “That announcement immediately brought down the price of crude. This could become welcome news to motorists who are paying the highest prices to fill up since 2014.”
