FRAMINGHAM –  Massachusetts’s average gas price is up two cents from last week ($2.93), averaging $2.95 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 5 cents higher than a month ago ($2.90), and 91 cents higher than June 14, 2020 ($2.04).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 13 cents lower than the national average.

“Motorists are paying, on average, 37% more to fill up than the start of the year,” said Mary Maguire, Director of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast, in a press release. “Prices for the rest of the month are likely to push more expensive, but if crude production increases, as forecasted, there is the possibility of seeing some relief at the pump later this summer.”

AAA Northeast’s June 14 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 3 cents higher than last week ($3.05), averaging $3.08 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 5 cents higher than a month ago ($3.03), and 98 cents higher than this day last year ($2.10).
