AAA: Gas prices in Massachusetts $1.00 less a gallon than a year ago



Westwood, MA, March 20, 2023 — After one week of a slight increase after a handful of weeks seeing a dip, gas prices in Massachusetts saw a slight decrease last week.

According to AAA, the average gas price in Massachusetts is down 2 cents from last week ($3.29), averaging $3.27 per gallon. Today’s price is 7 cents lower than a month ago ($3.34), and $1.00 lower than March 20, 2022 ($4.27). Massachusetts’ average gas price is 17 cents lower than the national average.

“The global oil price has plunged to around $65 per barrel, a level not seen since December of 2021. Given that the cost of oil accounts for 55% of what we pay for gas, it’s not surprising to see prices drop at the pump,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Vice President of Public and Government Affairs.

AAA Northeast’s March 20 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 3 cents lower than last week ($3.47), averaging $3.44 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 3 cents higher than a month ago ($3.41), and is 81 cents lower than this day last year ($4.25).
