BOSTON — Gasoline prices in Massachusetts are down 5 cents this week, according to AAA Northeast, and are now at their lowest price locally in 18 months. AAA's survey of state gas prices Monday found self-serve, regular unleaded averaging $2.34 per gallon, seven cents higher than the national average. A year ago at this time, the average price in Massachusetts was 22 cents higher. The range in prices in the latest AAA survey for unleaded regular is 90 cents, from a low of $2.15 to a high of $3.05."The northeast continues to have some of the strongest supplies of gasoline anywhere in the country," said AAA spokeswoman Mary Maguire. "This has helped keep prices from rising, unlike the jumps being seen in half of the nation."
