Gas prices down on New Year’s Day

Franklin County

Massachusetts is starting the New Year with lower gas prices.

22News visited several gas stations in Franklin County on Tuesday, where people said the price change isn’t much of a difference.

According to AAA, as of January 1st, national average for gas is $2.25 per gallon. In Massachusets, the average is about a quarter more at $2.53 per gallon.

And in Franklin County the average is $2.41 per gallon, about 20 cents cheaper than the average gas price a month ago for regular gas. But most drivers in Franklin County said it’s a minimal change.

The highest recorded average price for regular unleaded gas was back in July 2008 at $4.09 per gallon.
