BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The national average price of gas went up this week, and a slightly bigger change was seen in New York.

  • National average price per gallon: $2.90 (up one cent)
  • New York average price per gallon: $2.95 (up three cents)

One year ago, the national average was $1.78, while New York’s was $2.16.

Here are the average prices across upstate New York:

  • Batavia – $2.89 (up one cent since last week)
  • Buffalo – $2.88 (up two cents since last week)
  • Ithaca – $2.90 (up three cents since last week)
  • Rochester – $2.91 (up three cents since last week)
  • Rome – $2.97 (up two cents since last week)
  • Syracuse – $2.89 (up one cent since last week)
  • Watertown – $2.97 (up two cents since last week)

“Gasoline stocks increased in the U.S. last week and oil prices remain up over $60 per barrel,” AAA says. “Prices jumped after OPEC confirmed plans to increase crude production in May.”
