Albany gas prices are averaging $2.75/g today, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 546 stations in Albany.
Average prices across the state went up as well.
- National average: $2.72 ($2.44 one year ago)
- NYS average: $2.78 ($2.60 one year ago)
“The national average continues to increase as crude prices march higher. Gas prices have also increased from longer-than-expected refinery outages due to last week’s winter storm that impacted the Gulf Coast. As refineries restart and resume normal operations, supply is expected to increase in impacted areas and should bring stability to pump prices. Until then, most drivers should expect pump prices to continue increasing.”AAA
