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 2 cents higher than a month ago ($3.08), and 1 dollar higher than October 4, 2020 ($2.10).

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

“Global economic uncertainty and supply chain concerns caused by the lingering COVID-19 pandemic could be playing a role in keeping crude oil prices elevated,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public Affairs, in a press release. “But there may be some relief on the horizon due to the news that OPEC and its allies might ramp up production increases faster than previously agreed.”

AAA Northeast’s October 4 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to 2 cents higher than last week ($3.18), averaging $3.20 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 2 cents higher than a month ago ($3.18), and $1.02 higher than this day last year ($2.18).
