Mass. Gas Prices Down by a Penny

BOSTON (AP) — Gas prices in Massachusetts trickled down by a penny this week but remain well above the national average.

AAA Southern New England reports Monday that self-serve, regular dropped to an average of $3.65 per gallon. But even though prices in the state are down 23 cents per gallon the last month, Bay State drivers are still paying 18 cents more per gallon than the national average of $3.47.

State prices also remain 26 cents per gallon higher than at the same time last year.

AAA says it found self-serve, regular selling for as low as $3.456 and as high as $3.96 per gallon.

    Wow for 10 gallons the cost is $36.50 and I saved 10 cents. I can’t believe it. Who do I thank?

    Gas hasn’t dropped a cent at the 4 corners (Allen and Cooley intersection) in Springfield – they race each other to RAISE their prices. I was driving around eastern Mass last week and went by a TINY Gibbs station that was FULL-service, not self, selling regular for $3.59. Why am I getting so reamed in the 16 Acres section?
