FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is up two cents from last week ($2.34), averaging $2.36 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 17 cents higher than a month ago ($2.19), and 21 cents cheaper than January 25, 2020 ($2.57).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 4 cents lower than the national average.

“Most motorists continue to see gas prices increase, but at a slower rate than the past few weeks,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, said in a press release. “Part of that is due to more stable crude oil prices throughout January. However, if demand continues another week of substantial increases, we can expect to see pump prices get more expensive.”

AAA Northeast’s January 25 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 2 cents higher than last week ($2.38), averaging $2.40 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 15 cents higher than a month ago ($2.25), and 12 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.52).
