Massachusetts’s average gas price is three cents higher than the national average.  

“Drivers will appreciate cheaper gas in June as supply continues to outpace demand, but market watchers should keep their eyes peeled on the Atlantic Ocean in addition to the current price at the pump,” said Mark Schieldrop, Senior Spokesperson for AAA Northeast.
