NEW: Gas Prices Fall this Week in Massachusetts
Monday, April 23, 2012
This comes from a report by AAA Southern New England that found self-serve, regular unleaded was going for an average of $3.85 and 9/10 over the past week. Though this is a slight drop from last week, it is still nine cents higher than prices a month ago.
The price average in the Commonwealth matches the national average of around $3.85, and is only a three-cent raise from state prices a year ago. The range of prices in the latest AAA survey was found to be 26 cents, with a low of $3.73 and a high of $3.99 throughout the state.
AAA is advising motorists to shop around for the lowest prices in their area, and do little things to conserve fuel. For instance, rooftop storage boxes can reduce your fuel economy by up to 20 percent. If you are still driving around with your ski box on top of your vehicle, it may be time to take it down.
