FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is down 4 cents from last week ($4.11), averaging $4.07 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 22 cents lower than a month ago ($4.29), and $1.33 higher than April 18, 2021 ($2.74). Massachusetts’s average gas price is 1 cent lower than the national average.

“As the days get longer, the weather gets warmer, and pump prices dip from their record highs, consumers feel more confident about hitting the road,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “But these lower pump prices could be temporary if the global price of oil increases due to constrained supply.”
