BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — AAA says prices at the pump are “holding steady” because neither the national nor state averages have changed since last week, remaining at $2.19 and $2.26, respectively. Last year, the national average was $2.66 and New York’s was $2.72. AAA expects gas prices “to remain reasonable for the fall foliage travel season.”
In Albany, according to GasBuddy price reports, gas dropped by $0.05 this week for a $2.25 per gallon average on Monday. GasBuddy’s daily survey of over 500 stations shows gas in Albany at $0.056 cents per gallon lower than it was a month ago, and $0.388 cents per gallon lower than a year ago.
GasBuddy says the Albany gas stations range from $1.99 to $2.43 per gallon. Statewide, the lowest is $1.89, and the highest is $2.99.
Here are the average prices across upstate New York:
- Batavia – $2.21 (no change since last week)
- Buffalo – $2.23 (no change since last week)
- Ithaca – $2.19 (down one cent since last week)
- Rochester – $2.24 (down one cent since last week)
- Rome – $2.31 (down one cent since last week)

Winter blend fuel will debut with the holiday season, and AAA says this is cheaper to produce. Because of this, gas prices aren’t expected to see a significant jump upward any time soon.
