BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — This week’s gas price changes aren’t as drastic as last week’s, but they’re still up again.

AAA says the national average price for a gallon of gas is up one cent, while the New York average is up by two.

  • U.S. average – $3.40/gallon ($2.13 in 2020)
  • NYS average – $3.55/gallon ($2.23 in 2020)

Here are the average prices across upstate New York:

  • Batavia – $3.46 (up one cent from last week)
  • Binghamton – $3.51 (no change from last week)
  • Buffalo – $3.47 (up two cents from last week)
  • Elmira – $3.48 (down one cent from last week)
  • Ithaca – $3.51 (up one cent from last week)
  • Rochester – $3.52 (up two cents from last week)
  • Rome – $3.54 (up three cents from last week)
  • Syracuse – $3.50 (up two cents from last week)
  • Watertown – $3.55 (up three cents since last week)
  • Williamsport, PA – $ 3.58 (up one cent since last week)

“Gas prices will likely keep rising as long as oil prices are above $80 per barrel,” AAA says. “This morning, oil prices are $82 to $83 per barrel, which is a tad lower than one week ago.”
