FRAMINGHAM – Massachusetts’s average gas price is up 23 cents from last week ($4.73), averaging $4.96 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 66 cents higher than a month ago ($4.30), and $2.03 higher than June 6, 2021 ($2.93). Massachusetts’s average gas price is 10 cents higher than the national average.

The cost of a barrel of oil is nearing $120, nearly double from last August, as increased oil demand outpaces the tight global supply.

Meanwhile, domestic gasoline demand rose last week in the wake of a robust Memorial Day weekend of travel. As a result, the national average for a gallon of gas surged 25 cents in one week to hit $4.86.

“People are still fueling up, despite these high prices,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “At some point, drivers may change their daily driving habits or lifestyle due to these high prices, but we are not there yet.”

AAA Northeast’s June 6 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 25 cents higher than last week ($4.61), averaging $4.86 a gallon.

Today’s national average price is 59 cents higher than a month ago ($4.27), and $1.81 higher than this day last year ($3.05).
