FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is up 1 cent from last week ($3.08), averaging $3.09 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 5 cents higher than a month ago ($3.04), and 95 cents higher than September 13, 2020 ($2.14).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 8 cents lower than the national average.

“Timing is everything, and while supplies have tightened due to the slow recovery after Hurricane Ida, this is also the point when gas demand starts its seasonal decline,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public Affairs, in a press release. “While there may be some price fluctuation, we expect most motorists to see stability at the pump.”


AAA Northeast’s September 13 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to 1 cent lower than last week ($3.18), averaging $3.17 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 1 cent lower than a month ago ($3.18), and 98 cents higher than this day last year ($2.19).
