JAMESTOWN – Gas prices in the Jamestown area are continuing to fall thanks to decreased demand due to the COVID-19 outbreak.

According to GasBuddy.com in Jamestown the average price for a gallon of petrol is $2.17.

Area’s to the north the price is even lower. Dunkirk’s average price sits at $2.15, in Irving the price sits under a dollar at .99 cents a gallon.

In parts of Salamanca, the price for a regular gallon of gas is only .68 cents.

Even with crude oil selling at less than half of what it was in January, and even with a 75 to 80 cent tax advantage in Seneca territory it’s hard to believe this price could even be profitable.

Because Seneca businesses are tax-exempt, stations in Salamanca that are selling for as low as 65 cents are still making a few cents profit, owners say.
