JAMESTOWN – The price of gas has gone down since last week, both in New York and across the nation.
The national average of $2.11 is down two cents, while New York’s price of $2.22 is down one cent. One year ago, those prices were $2.59 and $2.69, respectively.
According to GasBuddy.com, the price at the pump in Jamestown is $2.35. In more rural areas like Clymer we are already seeing a price decrease, with pumps selling petrol for $2.32.
Dunkirk matches Jamestown at $2.35 a gallon while nearby Warren, Pennsylvania is selling gas for $2.59.
The Energy Information Administration says total domestic stocks of gasoline increased, while the demand for it dropped, leading to lower prices.
