Massachusetts gas prices dropped 2 cents a gallon over the past week and are down 10 cents a gallon from a month ago, according to AAA Northeast.

The group’s latest survey results, released on Monday, pegged the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas at $2.64, compared to $3.58 at this time a year ago. Prices ranged from a low of $2.41 to a high of $2.96, according to the survey.

“The falling prices we’ve seen in recent weeks spell good news for vacationing motorists, who experienced the lowest July 4 prices we’d seen in five years, and can now benefit from mid-summer prices at the pump that continue to trend lower,” AAA Northeast director of public and legislative affairs Mary Maguire said in a statement.
