Capital Region Gas Prices Under $3 a Gallon? Here Are the Cheapest
Are New York gas prices really going down? Just 4 months ago we were happy to see prices at the pump fall below $4 a gallon. Today there are several gas stations under $3.50 a gallon but only a few around $3 a gallon.
This Summer I researched the cheapest gas stations in the Capital Region with only 2 offered prices below $4 a gallon. Today I have an update for you and prices are headed in the right direction. How low will they go? We will see but for now, these are the 6 cheapest with one dropping below $3 a gallon.
According to AAA, the current average price for one gallon of gas in the country is $3.31/gallon, which is down 60 cents from Summer. However the New York State average is $3.63. The New York average is down 27 cents from one month ago and just 20 cents down from this time one year ago.
Will prices continue to drop? CNN Business reports that crude oil prices have taken a plunge but companies such as Exxon and Chevron continue to prosper. The hunch is that lower gas prices aren't here to stay. Take advantage while we can? Here's a list of 6 of the cheapest gas stations in the Capital Region today.
