Massachusetts gas prices down 2 cents; the Pru will light up for the Celtics

Gas prices continue to tick down in the Bay State.

The average gas price in Massachusetts was down two cents over last week ($3.53), averaging $3.51 per gallon on Monday, according to AAA Northeast.

The price is nine cents lower than a month ago ($3.60) and a penny lower than last June 3 ($3.52). The state’s average gas price is two cents lower than the national average.

“Ample supplies of gasoline and strong domestic production are key factors in recent price declines, buoyed by tepid demand so far this year,” said Mark Schieldrop of AAA Northeast.

“Many petroleum market participants are eyeing the EIA’s release later this week of demand figures from the Memorial Day holiday for guidance,” he added. “If production continues at its current clip, even spectacular demand over the holiday weekend might do little to move pump prices higher.”

AAA Northeast’s June 3 survey of fuel prices found the current national average down six cents from last week ($3.59), averaging $3.53 a gallon. The national average price is 13 cents lower than a month ago ($3.66) and two cents lower than this day last year ($3.55).

Prudential Center lighting tower for Celtics

As the Celtics take on the Dallas Mavericks in the NBA Finals this week, the Prudential Center will be lit up with “Go C’s.”

The Celtics message will go up Thursday night for Game 1, and will stay until sunrise on Friday. The Pru will display the same “Go C’s” message for Game 2 on Sunday night.

The top of the Pru will also be lit up in green for the Celts.

The 52-story Prudential Tower has supported Boston teams throughout the years, lighting up the top of the tower with team colors and sharing messages of “Go Sox”, “Go Pats”, “Go C’s” and “Go B’s” when the teams were playing for a championship at home. The “Go C’s” light up was last done during the NBA Finals for the Celtics in 2022.
