AAA: Massachusetts Gas Prices $1 Lower Than Last Year
FRAMINGHAM – The average gas price in Massachusetts is up 2 cents from last week ($3.27), averaging $3.29 per gallon.
Today’s price is 9 cents lower than a month ago ($3.38), and $1.06 lower than March 13, 2022 ($4.35).
Massachusetts’ average gas price is 18 cents lower than the national average.
“Less expensive oil and fewer people fueling usually combine to lower pump prices,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Vice President of Public and Government Affairs, in a press release. “However, there is some upward pricing pressure at the moment due to the switch to summer blend gasoline, which may add about five to ten cents per gallon. But if demand and oil costs remain low, this recent price bounce may fade.”
AAA Northeast’s March 13 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 7 cents higher than last week ($3.40), averaging $3.47 a gallon.
Today’s national average price is 6 cents higher than a month ago ($3.41), and is 85 cents lower than this day last year ($4.32).
