FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price increased one cent from last week ($2.10), averaging $2.11 per gallon, reported AAA, which has an office in Framingham/
Today’s price is the 3 cents lower than a month ago ($2.14), and 46 cents cheaper than October 13, 2019 ($2.57). Massachusetts’s average gas price is 7 cents lower than the national average.
“In a typical year, a hurricane season like we’ve experienced this year would have caused gas prices to spike, but 2020 is not a typical year,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast, in a press release. “Low U.S. gasoline demand has helped contain any impact to gas prices locally and regionally throughout this hurricane season.”
AAA Northeast’s October 13 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 4 cents higher than a month ago ($2.22), and 47 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.65).
