FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $2.76 per gallon. 

Today’s price is 12 cents higher than a month ago ($2.64), and 65 cents higher than March 29, 2020 ($2.11).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 10 cents lower than the national average.

“Growing supplies and cheaper crude oil prices are putting downward pressure on pump prices for the majority of motorists,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “These are positive signs that less expensive gas prices could be around the corner, but not enough to indicate a steady trend just yet.”

AAA Northeast’s March 29 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 2 cents lower than last week ($2.88), averaging $2.86 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 15 cents higher than a month ago ($2.71), and 84 cents higher than this day last year ($2.02).
