DEDHAM, Mass. — The months-long streak of gas prices above $4 a gallon has finally come to an end.
AAA says the price of a regular gallon of gas in Massachusetts is now $3.97, just as the Labor Day holiday kicks in.
The current price is down 67 cents from one month ago, and $1.07 below the record state high, set on June 12.
Massachusetts is still well below the national average, which currently sits at $3.81 a gallon.
“Gas prices remain relatively high here in the northeast, where inventories are lower than in other parts of the country,” said Patti Artessa, AAA Northeast Regional Director of Public and Government Affairs. “Prices continue to fall steadily, however, and that’s good news for motorists planning their last summer driving trip over the upcoming Labor Day weekend.”
