Area Gas Prices Continue To Tumble

New England drivers still paying well above the national average.

As the Christmas travel season approaches, drivers are on the receiving end of some good news relative to gas prices.

According to AAA Southern New England, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas (self-serve) dropped another seven cents this past week, to $3.47.

The good news is that price is 14 cents lower than a month ago. The bad news is, New England drivers are still paying roughly 13 cents higher than the national average and a full 20 cents higher than the price of gas in December 2011.

According to the gas stations surveyed by AAA, prices ranged from $3.33 to $3.75 for unleaded regular self-serve.

I agree! I fill my tank before coming back on cape; I think it's totally unfair they have the right to overcharge year round residents!!!

Paid $3.21 a gallon today in Whitman (cheapest gas ever and always), take that Hess on Cape Cod !!! Also, Thank you to a few folks here, I stopped at Market Basket on the way home too. Wow, the difference in prices is astounding ! Guess I can do ALL my shopping on Mondays now off the Cape ! Sorry to all the hard workers here though, it just happens to be about MY profit at the end of the week too ! You know, maybe we should be contacting the Attorney General and let them in on the "price gouging" here on the Cape ?
