Gas Prices Continue to Trickle Down


The average price for a gallon of gas continues to drop across New York. AAA of Western and Central New York reported the average is $3.57 down four cents from one week ago. One year ago, the New York average was $3.79.

Diesel prices also fell over the past week. Here in New York, the average price is $4.60, down three cents from one week ago and lower than $5.87 one year ago.

Thanksgiving travelers benefited from lower gas prices. Demand spiked for the holiday with 49.1 million people driving 50 miles or more from home over the Thanksgiving travel period. But oil prices were down to $75 to $80 per barrel Monday morning, which helped keep pump prices down. Typically, gas prices are lower in the winter months so an increase in prices is not expected anytime soon.
