FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is down one cent from last week ($2.14), averaging $2.13 per gallon.

Today’s price is 3 cents higher than a month ago ($2.10) and 60 cents cheaper than August 3, 2019 ($2.73). Massachusetts’s average gas price is 5 cents lower than the national average.

“There’s no doubt that this is the cheapest summer at the pump for drivers in more than a decade. The last two months have posted a national average of $2.14,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release. “While we expect to see typical fluctuation, August gas prices are not expected to spike, especially amid increases in COVID-19 cases.”

AAA Northeast’s August 3 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be the same as last week, averaging $2.18 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 1 cent higher than a month ago ($2.17), and 53 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.71).
