Average gas prices are up across NY

Around New York State

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Gas prices are up, and that goes for New York and the country as a whole.

According to AAA, the national average is up two cents at $2.89 per gallon. A year ago, it was $1.78.

New York’s average price went up three cents since last week. It’s now $2.92, but was $2.19 a year ago.

Here are the average prices across upstate New York:

  • Batavia – $2.88 (up three cents since last week)
  • Buffalo – $2.86 (up four cents since last week)
  • Ithaca – $2.87 (up one cent since last week)
  • Rochester – $2.88 (up one cent since last week)
  • Rome – $2.95 (up one cent since last week)
  • Syracuse – $2.88 (up three cents since last week)
  • Watertown – $2.95 (no change since last week)

“Last week’s demand estimate is one of the highest since March 2020. A year ago, social distancing restrictions were established that dramatically reduced gas demand. Now, the demand for fuel is in line with the typical spring driving season rates seen pre-pandemic. Continued growth in total domestic supply will likely help to keep pump prices from spiking dramatically.”
