FRAMINGHAM  — The average gas price in Massachusetts is down 13 cents from last week ($4.04), averaging $3.91 per gallon. 

The state’s average hasn’t been below $4 a gallon since February of this year.

Today’s price is 48 cents lower than a month ago ($4.39), and 83 cents higher than September 6, 2021 ($3.08).

Massachusetts’ average gas price is 14 cents higher than the national average.

Lower oil prices, modest domestic gasoline demand, and a quiet hurricane season are combining to drive pump prices lower. The national average for a gallon of gas fell seven cents in the past week to $3.77.

“According to weather analysts, it’s the first time in 25 years that a named Atlantic storm did not develop in August. That’s the good news,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “But we still have another month of peak hurricane season, and these storms can affect gas prices by disrupting oil production and refining.”

AAA Northeast’s September 6 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 7 cents lower than last week ($3.84), averaging $3.77 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 31 cents lower than a month ago ($4.08), and 59 cents higher than this day last year ($3.18).
