They won't completely erase the sticker shock you are having at the pump right now, but they can keep some of your hard-earned cash in your pocket.

Right now gasoline prices are higher than they have been in years. While we are not as bad as say California, according to Gas Buddy Upstate New York does have some of the more expensive gas prices in the nation averaging about $3.40 to $3.59 a gallon. Ouch!!

For those of us commuting to work and especially those who need to drive for work, those extra dollars and cents on every gallon can quickly add up. Let's face it - expensive gas can be a budget breaker every month. I have a reasonable commute, but like any family with several kids, every dollar matters. The only real solution long term is for the trend of gas prices to plummet in a favorable direction. That really is the only way we will start seeing real, tangible savings at the pump.
