FRAMINGHAM –  Massachusetts’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $3.42 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast.

Today’s price is 5 cents higher than a month ago ($3.37), and $1.34 higher than November 29, 2020 ($2.08).

Massachusetts’s average gas price is 3 cents higher than the national average.

“It’s too soon to tell if fears of a global economic slowdown prompted by the Omicron variant will put downward pressure on oil prices for the long term,” says Mary Maguire, Director of Public/Government Affairs, in a press release from AAA Northeast. “But for now, the upward pricing pressure caused by tighter supply and higher demand seems to have abated, and that seems to be stabilizing prices at the pump.”

AAA Northeast’s November 29 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 1 cent lower than last week ($3.40), averaging $3.39 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 1 cent lower than a month ago ($3.40), and $1.27 higher than this day last year ($2.12).
