_Massachusetts Gas Prices Down 5 Cents

Westwood, MA, June 21, 2022 — Massachusetts’s average gas price is down 5 cents from last week ($5.04), averaging $4.99 per gallon. Today’s price is 26 cents higher than a month ago ($4.73), and $2.04 higher than June 21, 2021 ($2.95). Massachusetts’s average gas price is 3 cents higher than the national average.

“Demand for gasoline has declined, perhaps in response to record-breaking high gas prices—and that has helped push down prices at the pump,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs. “This dip in demand, coupled with a drop in oil prices, has taken some of the steam out of surging gasoline prices. But consumers are still paying historically high prices.”

AAA Northeast’s June 21 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 5 cents lower than last week ($5.01), averaging $4.96 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 37 cents higher than a month ago ($4.59), and $1.89 higher than this day last year ($3.07).
