BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Gas is still taking a toll on the wallets of drivers in New York.

According to AAA, New York’s average price for a gallon of gas is $3.48, while the nation’s is $3.30. One year ago, those prices were $2.39 and $2.31, respectively.

“There’s no relief at the pump due to rising oil prices, which are back in the $80 per barrel territory,” AAA says.

Although the national average is up one cent, New York’s is actually down by a cent. Here are the current averages across upstate New York:

  • Batavia – $3.42 (down two cents from last week)
  • Buffalo – $3.45 (no change from last week)
  • Ithaca – $3.49 (no change from last week)
  • Rochester – $3.49 (down one cent from last week)
  • Rome – $3.52 (no change from last week)
  • Syracuse – $3.46(up one cent from last week)
  • Watertown – $3.50 (no change from last week)
