The average price of gasoline in MA is 42 cents higher than it was at this time a year ago. Generally, year-end gas prices tend to be relatively cheap due to a drop-off in demand around Labor Day and the shift to cheaper-to-produce winter-blend gas.

In Connecticut, Monday's average price of a gallon of regular unleaded stood at $2.70, which was 41 cents above what it was on the same date a year ago.

Exports: According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), in the first half of 2017 USA exports of total motor gasoline averaged a record high of 756,000 b/d, a three percent increase from the first half of 2016. The second half of 2017 has seen this trend continue to climb, with exports peaking to one of their highest points in 2017 – 906,000 barrels per day – last month. The national average has gone up 37.6 cents since a year ago and is also up 3.5 cents since last month.

AAA found self-serve, regular gasoline selling for as low as $2.43 per gallon and as high as $2.70 in Rhode Island.

Today, motorists can find gas for $2.50 or less at 63 percent of gas stations nationwide.
