Westwood, MA, April 26, 2021 — Massachusetts’s average gas price is up three cents from last week ($2.74), averaging $2.77 per gallon. Today’s price is 1 cent higher than a month ago ($2.76), and 83 cents higher than April 26, 2020 ($1.94). Massachusetts’s average gas price is 11 cents lower than the national average.
“Both demand and supply have steadily increased over the last several weeks,” said Mary Maguire, AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Affairs. “The jump in demand combined with a small increase in supply pushed the national gas price average two cents more expensive on the week to $2.88. This is the largest one-week national jump we’ve seen in five weeks.”
