(WWLP) – The cost of gas in Massachusetts is defying historical trends and dropping as the summer driving season gets underway.

According to AAA, that a gallon of self-serve regular gas is selling for an average of $2.67 per gallon, 4 cents lower than a week ago.

The current price is a penny lower than the national average and 20 cents lower than last year’s average in Massachusetts.

A spokesman for AAA says a decline in prices at this time of year is unusual, because higher demand in the summer usually drives prices higher.
