FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is down a penny from last week, averaging $2.06 per gallon.
Today’s price is the 4 cents lower than a month ago ($2.10), and 53 cents cheaper than November 23, 2019 ($2.59).
Massachusetts’s average gas price is 4 cents lower than the national average.
“Typically, cheaper gas prices are an incentive for people to travel during a holiday weekend, but that is just not the case this year,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast, in a press release. “AAA forecasted a decrease in Thanksgiving travel year-over-year due to increasing COVID-19 positive case numbers, renewed quarantine guidelines and the latest CDC guidance. All of this has prompted Americans, who had plans to travel, to reconsider spending the holiday at home.”
AAA Northeast’s November 23 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 2 cent lower than last week ($2.12), averaging $2.10 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 6 cents lower than a month ago ($2.16), and 49 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.59).
