Average Price of Gas Doesn’t Budge From Last Week


Monday’s New York State average for a gallon of gasoline is the same as last week, $3.26. One year ago this week the state average was $3.57 a gallon. The national average price is $3.11, up three cents from last Monday. One year ago, the price was $3.51.

Diesel prices are also steady. The national average price for diesel is $3.91, with no change from one week ago, and down from $4.69 a year ago. The New York average for diesel is $4.40, also no change from a week ago, and lower than $5.29 one year ago.

According to AAA of Western and Central New York, since last week, the national average for a gallon of gas has barely risen three cents as local gas prices have remained relatively steady with a slight decline in most areas. This is likely caused by low gas demand countered by slightly higher costs for oil. December and January are when we typically see lower gas prices. Due to fluctuating oil prices, lower gas demand, and rising total domestic gasoline stocks, drivers could see pump prices increase steadily in the weeks ahead.
