Local Gas Prices Above National Average
If you have done any traveling recently this comes as no surprise. Gas prices in New York State are far above the national average. As reported by WIBX radio’s Kristine Bellino the state average is nearly 30 cents higher than the national with the Central New York area among the highest. State Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi is asking questions.
Assemblyman Brindisi is asking New York State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman to investigate allegations of price gouging by local retailers. Brindisi says he has been receiving calls over the past six months from constituents who have complained that prices in his district are higher than elsewhere in New York. He has personally seen the difference as well driving back and forth from Utica to Albany.
