New: Mass. Gas Prices Up 24 Cents in One Month

Monday, March 05, 2012

 

Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are up five cents this week, the eleventh consecutive week of increases, according to AAA Southern New England.

AAA’s March 5 survey of prices in Massachusetts found self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $3.739 per gallon, five cents more than a week ago and 24 cents higher than a month ago. The current price is three cents below the national average for self serve unleaded of $3.76. A year ago at this time the Massachusetts average price was $3.44.

The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 29 cents, from a low of $3.60 to a high of $3.89. AAA advises motorists to shop around for the best prices in their area, and to make sure they and their passengers buckle up — every time.

AAA Fuel Saving Tip of the Week
Keep your eyes open for lower fuel prices, but don’t waste gas driving to a distant filling station to save a few cents.

Under direction from Governor Patrick, state inspectors this week are stepping up oversight efforts at gasoline stations throughout the Bay State to guard against potential price gouging, false advertising and other improper practices during this winter run-up in gasoline prices.

The Patrick-Murray Administration's Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation sent an alert to all Division of Standards field inspectors to pay close attention to “unusually high prices in any area.” The nine field inspectors cover every region of the Commonwealth from Pittsfield to Provincetown, making unscheduled visits to gasoline stations to monitor not only prices but also advertising practices and product quality.

“Drivers are paying considerably more for gas than they were paying this time last year and we want to make certain that they are being charged a fair price for a necessity,” said Barbara Anthony, Undersecretary of the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation. “While price gouging is not common, Governor Patrick and I want drivers to know that we will not tolerate unfair business practices as consumers cope with these extremely high gas prices.”
