FRAMINGHAM –  Massachusetts’s average gas price is up 2 cents from last week ($3.06), averaging $3.08 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 4 cents higher than a month ago ($3.04), and 93 cents higher than September 7, 2020 ($2.15).

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

“Historically, gas demand starts to decline in the fall as schools reopen and summer road trips end, which leads to less expensive gas prices,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public Affairs, in a press release. “Despite the dip in demand, the national average is expected to remain above $3/gallon especially as crude oil continues to price on the higher end.”

Motorists will welcome the cheaper gas prices following the most expensive summer at the pump in seven years.
