BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts gas prices are up by a penny this week, but drivers can expect prices to fall this holiday season.
AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey released Monday that the price of self-serve, regular is averaging $2.49 per gallon.
The average price is three cents above the national average of $2.46. It’s 32 cents higher than the price in Massachusetts was a year ago at this time— $2.17 per gallon.
AAA says gas prices are expected to drop as supply strengthens and the demand for gasoline weakens throughout the winter.
AAA found self-serve, regular gasoline selling for as low as $2.31 per gallon and as high as $2.79 in Massachusetts.
