FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $2.74 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 1 cent higher than a month ago ($2.73), and 74 cents higher than April 12, 2020 ($2.00).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 12 cents lower than the national average.

“After a wild March, Americans are seeing a little stability at the pump. On the week, 40 states’ averages either increased or decreased by only a penny, or had no change at all,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs,” in a press release. “Cheaper crude oil prices will likely help to keep price fluctuation low this week.”

AAA Northeast’s April 12 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent lower than last week ($2.87), averaging $2.86 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 3 cents higher than a month ago ($2.83), and 1 dollar higher than this day last year ($1.86).
