New York News

BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The national average price of gas and the average price in New York are both down from last week. One year ago, those prices were $2.62 and $2.70, respectively. Now, they’re $2.11 and $2.22. Prices are expected to continue dropping as demand remains low, AAA says.
