FRAMINGHAM – The average gas price in Massachusetts is up 6 cents from last week ($3.37), averaging $3.43 per gallon, according to AAA Northeast, which has an office in Framingham.

Today’s price is 7 cents lower than a month ago ($3.36), and 4 cents higher than January 30, 2022 ($3.39).

Massachusetts’ average gas price is 7 cents lower than the national average.

“January’s weather was relatively mild in much of the nation, which led to more drivers hitting the road. However, a return of wintery conditions in February may see a revival of seasonal driving patterns,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Vice President of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “But with the cost of oil stubbornly hovering around $80 per barrel, drivers probably won’t catch a big break at the pump over the next week or two.”
