Gas prices drop 6 cents in Batavia for biggest change in region

posted by Howard B. Owens in gas prices, news, notify.

Press release from AAA: 

Today’s national average price for a gallon of gasoline is $2.28, up 2 cents from last week. One year ago, the price was $2.58. The New York State average is $2.47 – down 2 cents from last week. A year ago, the NYS average was $2.76. AAA Western and Central New York (AAA WCNY) reports the following averages:

  • Batavia -- $2.47 (down 6 cents since last week)
  • Buffalo -- $2.51 (down 2 cents since last week)
  • Ithaca -- $2.34 (down 3 cents since last week)
  • Rochester -- $2.42 (down 2 cents since last week)
  • Rome -- $2.45 (down 2 cents since last week)
  • Syracuse -- $2.36 (down 2 cents since last week)
  • Watertown -- $2.43 (down 3 cents since last week)

National pump prices have inched up this week due to rising crude oil prices. The price gains have coincided with total gasoline stocks growing by approximately 500,000 barrels to 257.9 million barrels last week, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA). However, as a result of last week's frigid winter weather across the country, demand for gasoline fell sharply, after motorists stockpiled pre-storm, by approximately 500,000 barrels per day, according to EIA.
