Massachusetts gas prices drop for 5th straight week, down 80 cents from a year ago.



Westwood, MA, March 6, 2023 — Gas prices in Massachusetts have dropped for the fifth straight week and have also seen a marked drop compared to a year ago, 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 15 cents lower than a month ago ($3.42), and 80 cents lower than March 6, 2022 ($4.07). Massachusetts’ average gas price is 13 cents lower than the national average.

“With demand up and inventories down in the region, some higher prices locally don’t come as a surprise,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Vice President of Public and Government Affairs. “Another reason is that the seasonal switch to summer blend gasoline is underway, which may account for this bounce in pump prices.”

AAA Northeast’s March 6 survey of fuel prices found the current national average to be 4 cents higher than last week ($3.36), averaging $3.40 a gallon. Today’s national average price is 7 cents lower than a month ago ($3.47), and is 60 cents lower than this day last year ($4.00).
