FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is the same as last week, 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 99 cents higher than September 27, 2020 ($2.11).

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


“Consumers should see the usual autumn relief at the pump,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public Affairs, in a press release. “But factor in that approximately 16% of crude production in the Gulf of Mexico is still shut down because of Hurricanes Ida and Nicholas and the concerns about what higher COVID cases could do to the economy, and this uncertainty is helping to keep oil prices elevated.”

AAA Northeast’s September 27 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to 1 cent lower than last week ($3.19), averaging $3.18 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 4 cents higher than a month ago ($3.14), and $1.00 higher than this day last year ($2.18).
