Gas Prices

on Tuesday, 22 October 2013.

The price of gas has dropped locally in the last month, a trend that should continue through the end of the year except for the Thanksgiving and Christmas travel periods, according to Triple A Central Region General Manager Ed Welsh. The average price of gas in the Utica-Rome metro area this weekend was $3.64. That’s down a nickel over the last week and down 16 cents in a month, Welsh said. It’s still not as low as other areas in Central New York and Northern NY where it is $3.55 a gallon in Boonville and as low as $3.45 a gallon in Lowville. Walsh went on to say that there are two major factors driving the price down this time of year. First, demand drops after Labor Day. Second, refineries switch from summer to winter blend, which is cheaper to make. Mr. Walsh thinks the price will be a continuing trend for another few weeks. The prices this year are quite different from this time last year, when gas averaged $4.03 per gallon.
