Gas prices in Massachusetts drop for third consecutive week; continue to be less than a year ago, national average



Westwood, MA, February 20, 2023 — Gas prices in Massachusetts have dropped for a third consecutive week, according to AAA, continuing to be lower than both a year ago and the national average.

The average gas price in Massachusetts is down 4 cents from last week ($3.38), averaging $3.34 per gallon. Today’s price is the same as a month ago ($3.34), and 20 cents lower than February 20, 2022 ($3.54). Massachusetts’ average gas price is 7 cents lower than the national average.

“The U.S. is awash in crude oil with inventories building by 16 million barrels last week. This will put downward pressure on prices overall. Even as refineries are shutting down for planned and unplanned maintenance, it has not contributed to a tighter market so far,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Vice President of Public and Government Affairs.

AAA Northeast’s February 20 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be the same as last week, averaging $3.41 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 2 cents higher than a month ago ($3.39), and is 12 cents lower than this day last year ($3.53).

    I miss President Trump’s policies. I miss 1.87 gas prices. I miss being energy independent. I miss everyone being employed. I miss no war. I miss him.
