GAS PRICES HOLD STEADY FOR THANKSGIVING, SAYS AAA
Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are unchanged this week, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA’s November 20 survey of prices in Massachusetts finds self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.53 per gallon.
The Massachusetts price is one cent below the national average for regular unleaded of $2.54. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 45 cents lower at $2.08.
"As gas prices stabilize, this spells good news for Thanksgiving travelers. This year as in years past the majority of travelers will take to the roads—with nearly 9 of every 10 going by car," said John Paul Senior Manager of Public Affairs for AAA Northeast.
The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 42 cents, from a low of $2.37 to a high of $2.79. 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.
Today’s local gas prices and their ranges are as follows:
Self Serve Grade
