Gas prices remain stable in Massachusetts

File photo Gas prices have been stable for the last month.

The average gasoline price in Massachusetts has been stabilized for the past four weeks, with this week's at $2.74 per gallon of regular unleaded, the travel association AAA Northeast announced on Monday.

Prices were $2.73 a month ago, which is 1 cent lower than this week. A year ago, prices were $2.00 per gallon, which is 74 cents lower back when prices were depressed as the economy was slowing down due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Massachusetts is 12 cents lower than the national average in gas price. 

“After a wild March, Americans are seeing a little stability at the pump. On the week, 40 states’ averages either increased or decreased by only a penny, or had no change at all,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast director of public and government affairs. “Cheaper crude oil prices will likely help to keep price fluctuation low this week.”

The national current average is 1 cent lower than last week ($2.87), averaging $2.86 a gallon, 3 cents higher from last month, and $1 higher than last year ($1.86).
