Have you seen the price of gas in one Central New York town? It's cheap! So cheap one gas station actually ran out.

The national average for a gallon of gas is currently $3.44, which is 13 cents less than it was a year ago. AAA says the main reasons for the decline are "lackluster gasoline demand and burgeoning supply."

It's not as bad as it was a few years ago, but it isn't great either, especially with the busy summer driving season around the corner.
