All local regions see drop in prices

By AAA of Western and Central New York

Today’s national average price for a gallon of gasoline is $2.47, down 5 cents since last week. One year ago, the price was $2.26. The New York state average is $2.66, down 3 cents from last week. A year ago, the state average was $2.49.

AAA Western and Central New York (AAA WCNY) reports the following averages:

  • Batavia - $2.63 (down 1 cent since last week)
  • Buffalo - $2.58 (down 3 cents since last week)
  • Ithaca - $2.66 (down 1 cent since last week)
  • Rochester - $2.62 (down 3 cents since last week)
  • Rome - $2.64 (down 3 cents since last week)
  • Syracuse - $2.54 (down 4 cents since last week)
  • Watertown - $2.67 (down 2 cents since last week)

Gas prices continue to drop across the country and region. Motorists are using the cheaper winter blend fuel and demand is usually low at this time of year – combine that with higher domestic stock levels and gasoline prices drop. As long as oil prices don’t spike, we should continue to see more savings at the pump.

AAA members receive discounts at gas stations such as Fastrac, Maple Leaf Market and Shell locations across the country. Learn more here.
