Gasoline prices in Massachusetts fell to their lowest summer level since 2004, according to AAA Northeast.
The auto group’s July 25 survey of prices found self-serve, regular averaged $2.14 per gallon, down two cents from a week ago.
One year ago, the average price in the Bay State was 50 cents higher at $2.64.
“The low prices are contributing to what looks to be a record summer travel season, with Americans flocking to the beaches, national parks and a wide variety of destinations,” said Mary Maguire, AAA spokeswoman, in a statement.
The range in prices for regular is 22 cents, from a low of $2.07 at Angelo’s at 367 Lincoln Ave. in Saugus to a high of $2.29 at the Shell station in Swampscott, according to BostonGasBuddy.com.
