The latest survey out of AAA Southern New England finds a gallon of regular unleaded is going to cost less than $3.00. It’s been four years since prices were this low.
Sure at $2.98 it’s just under $3, but that’s still 22 cents cheaper than it was a month ago. Federal officials say weak fuel demand and lower crude oil prices are keeping costs down at the pump. And drivers can expect the average price for a gallon of unleaded to stay below $3.00 next year.
Massachusetts drivers are paying a nickel less than Rhode Islanders, with an average gallon at $2.93.
