FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $2.07 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is the 4 cents lower than a month ago ($2.11), and 49 cents cheaper than November 16, 2019 ($2.56).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 5 cents lower than the national average.

“Following a jump in demand, we’ve seen a number of state gas price averages increase on the week. However, the majority of these increases were just a few pennies,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “With many states seeing rising COVID-19 case numbers and a number of officials warning against holiday travel, demand is likely to see a dip in coming weeks.”

AAA Northeast’s November 16 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent higher than last week ($2.11), averaging $2.12 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 5 cents lower than a month ago ($2.17), and 48 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.60).
