FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is up three cents from last week ($2.36), averaging $2.39 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 18 cents higher than a month ago ($2.21), and 15 cents cheaper than February 1, 2020 ($2.54).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 3 cents lower than the national average.

“For nearly a year, motorists have been saving, compared to the previous year, when filling up their gas tanks. While prices locally are still cheaper than this time in 2020, that extra pocket change is quickly going to dwindle thanks to rising crude oil prices that have made for more expensive pump prices,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release.

AAA Northeast’s February 1 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 2 cents higher than last week ($2.40), averaging $2.42 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 17 cents higher than a month ago ($2.25), and 5 cents cheaper than this day last year ($2.47).
