Gas prices also declined in neighboring states Rhode Island and Connecticut, where a gallon cost an average of $3.26 and $3.13, respectively.
“Increasing supply and soft gasoline demand are pushing pump prices lower,” Mary Maguire, Vice President of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast, said in a news release. "Gasoline throughout the Northeast is now cheaper than the same time last year, which might have seemed unimaginable when prices peaked at record highs this past summer.”
The cost of gas in Massachusetts was 27 cents above the national average, which was $3.10 per gallon Tuesday.
