Gas prices slowly falling, lower demand linked to coronavirus

National

(WIVB)–Gasoline prices have fallen in large part because global demand for oil has fallen, especially in China.

According to AAA, the national price of gas fell about 6 cents a gallon over the past week to $2.41.

We’re paying an average of $2.52 a gallon in the Buffalo area, down a couple of pennies during that time.

Analysts suggest those prices could continue to stay low, as long as fewer people in China are using oil or gas.
