BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The average price of gas is up in both New York and the United States as a whole.
- New York average: $2.51 (up two cents)
- National average: $2.42 (up two cents)
One year ago, the average price for a gallon of gas in New York was $2.66. The national average was $2.48.
AAA says that although the national average price is only six cents different than it was one year ago, “local prices still have a larger disparity compared to last year.”
“Pump prices are increasing while gas demand is dropping,” AAA says, citing data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA).
