How high will they go?
Gas prices continue to climb in New York State and have hit another new record high.
According to the latest AAA Northeast survey, New York’s average price is up 24 cents from last week to $4.75 gallon.
The price is 57 cents higher that a month ago and $1.69 higher than May 2021.
New York’s price is 27 cents higher than the national average.
In the Utica-Rome area, the average price Is $4.71 a gallon, an increase of 24 cents from last week.
Last May, Utica-Rome drivers were paying an average of $3.07 a gallon.
“The high cost of crude oil, the key ingredient in gasoline, continues to push up pump prices dramatically for consumers,” said Patti Artessa, AAA Northeast Regional Director of Public and Government Affairs. “Even the annual seasonal demand dip for gasoline that we typically see between spring break and Memorial Day--which would normally help lower prices--is having no effect this year.”
