AAA Fuel Saving Tip of the Week: “With a 24-cent difference locally between the highest and lowest prices, it’s important that motorists shop around for the best prices in their area. It isn’t worth wasting gas driving to a distant station to save just a few cents, but keeping an eye on prices to and from work or elsewhere in areas where you regularly travel might pay off in savings,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Southern New England director of public and legislative affairs.
