Today's national average price for a gallon of gasoline is $2.56, down 6 cents from last week. One year ago, the price was $2.51. The New York state average is $2.83 - down 4 cents from last week. A year ago, the state average was $2.68.
AAA Western and Central New York (AAA WCNY) reports the following averages:
  • Batavia - $2.80 (down 1 cent since last week)
  • Buffalo - $2.92 (down 3 cents since last week)
  • Ithaca - $2.70 (down 4 cents since last week)

Motorists can add cheaper gas prices to their list of "things for which to be thankful" this Thanksgiving holiday season. Oil prices plunged on Friday - which has a direct impact on pump prices - and winter blend fuel is being used. Now that holiday shopping season is in full force, shoppers should keep in mind that gas stations along highly traveled routes may find prices more expensive. Before filling up, AAA recommends motorists download the free AAA mobile app to find the lowest gas prices in their area.
