FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $2.95 per gallon, said AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 4 cents higher than a month ago ($2.91), and 89 cents higher than June 21, 2020 ($2.06).

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

“Despite the latest increase in demand, many motorists are not seeing significant pump price jumps due to increasing supply levels, which have significantly built over the last four weeks,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “During this same period, the national gas price average has only increased four cents.”

AAA Northeast’s June 21 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent lower than last week ($3.08), averaging $3.07 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 3 cents higher than a month ago ($3.04), and 95 cents higher than this day last year ($2.12).
