Statewide Average Price for Gasoline Drops Slightly


The average price for a gallon of gas statewide is down two cents from one week ago. AAA of Western and Central New York reports the average price at $3.26, or 25 cents less than what it was one year ago this week.

According to AAA, since last week, the national average for a gallon of gas squeaked out a one-cent gain as local gas prices have remained steady with a slight decline in most areas. If June and July are when we typically see the highest gas prices, then December and January are when we see the lows. This pattern is holding firm, and the national average for gas will likely maintain this slow shuffle higher for the next week or two due to wintery weather hampering refinery operations and gasoline distribution.

The national average price for diesel is $3.91, down a cent from one week ago, and down from $4.62 a year ago. The New York average for diesel is $4.40, also down a cent from a week ago, and lower than $5.27 one year ago.
