FRAMINGHAM –  Massachusetts’s average gas price is the same as last week, averaging $3.38 per gallon. 

Today’s price is 3 cents lower than a month ago ($3.41), and $1.17 higher than January 3, 2021 ($2.21).

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

“Prices have been trending downward, which is good news for motorists,” says Mary Maguire, Director of Public/Government Affairs, in a press release. “Factors such as the continuing impact of COVID and the willingness of OPEC nations to increase oil production will play a role in what prices we see at the pumps throughout the first quarter of the year.”

AAA Northeast’s January 3 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be the same as last week, averaging $3.28 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 9 cents lower than a month ago ($3.37), and $1.03 higher than this day last year ($2.25).
