FRAMINGHAM –  Massachusetts’s average gas price is up 1 cent from last week ($3.09), averaging $3.10 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 5 cents higher than a month ago ($3.05), and 98 cents higher than September 20, 2020 ($2.12).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 9 cents lower than the national average.

“Hurricane Nicholas complicated and slowed the recovery from Ida, but the seasonal drop-off in demand helped mitigate price increases on the week,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public Affairs. “We aren’t in the clear yet, though. We are only at the mid-point for hurricane season, and it has been an active one so far, with 17 named storms already. Motorists can expect price fluctuations into October.”

AAA Northeast’s September 20 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to 2 cents higher than last week ($3.17), averaging $3.19 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 2 cents higher than a month ago ($3.17), and $1.01 higher than this day last year ($2.18).
