FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is down one cent from last week ($2.13), averaging $2.12 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.
Today’s price is the same as a month ago, and 49 cents cheaper than September 21, 2019 ($2.61).
Massachusetts’s average gas price is 6 cents lower than the national average.
“The majority of state averages have pushed cheaper by a penny or two since last Monday. With the nation entering the fall driving season, which typically sees fewer road trips, a continued drop in demand will likely lead to pump prices continuing to decrease,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Legislative Affairs, in a press release.
AAA Northeast’s September 21 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent lower than last week ($2.19), averaging $2.18 a gallon.
Today’s national average price is the same as a month ago, and 48 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.66).
