NEW: Mass Gas Prices Dip Again
Monday, April 30, 2012
AAA's April 30th survey found the average price of regular unleaded to be $3.82 and 9/10 in Massachusetts, down three cents from a week ago. That total is down seven cents from just two weeks ago, but still sits above the national average of $3.81.
The price is also a dip from the $3.94 gas cost on average in Massachusetts a year ago. AAA found a wide range in prices throughout the state, with regular unleaded going for as low as $3.65 and as high as $3.99, a range of 34 cents.
AAA, as always, is advising motorists to shop around for the best gas prices they can find and fasten their seat belts every time. Other averages in the state include $3.99 for midgrade unleaded and $4.10 for premium unleaded. Diesel fuel is going for an average of $4.19 throughout the state.
AAA offers gas saving tips to all drivers, such as using your air conditioning conservatively. As things warm up, be aware that most air conditioners have an "economy" or "recirculation" setting that reduces the amount of outside air that must be chilled. These settings reduce the air-conditioning load and save gas.
