Area Gas Prices Continue To Tumble

New England drivers still paying well above the national average.

As the Christmas travel season approaches, drivers are on the receiving end of some good news relative to gas prices.

According to AAA Southern New England, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas (self-serve) dropped another seven cents this past week, to $3.47.

The good news is that price is 14 cents lower than a month ago. The bad news is, New England drivers are still paying roughly 13 cents higher than the national average and a full 20 cents higher than the price of gas in December 2011.

According to the gas stations surveyed by AAA, prices ranged from $3.33 to $3.75 for unleaded regular self-serve.

In Tewksbury, some of the lowest prices can be found at Petroil ($3.39), Super Petroleum ($3.39), Haffner's ($3.44), A&B Automotive ($3.46) and Tewksbury BP ($3.46).

I remember when gas stations used to charge more for full service and charged you less for self serve even if you were paying cash or credit. Now they are screwing the customer by charging more to use your debit or credit card and you have to pump your own gas, I remember when they used to ask ''check the oil'' and automaticly clean your windows...Now we all pay high and get less service (except the BP station on 38 where they pump the gas, charge the same price and if you ask, they will check your oil and again you pay the same price) Haffners was know to be the cheapest gas prices in town, now they are just as greedy as everyone else, screw the customer and charge more get less
