JAMESTOWN – The average price for a gallon of gas is remaining steady in the Jamestown area, this as prices across New York State and the nation are going up.
However, some rural areas like Clymer and Sherman saw an increase to $2.39 per gallon.
The national average of $2.25 is three cents higher than it was last week, with New York’s average of $2.32 is up two cents.
One year ago, the national average was $2.57, while New York’s was $2.70.
Experts say the domestic price of crude oil has been steadily rising since November, reaching levels not seen since February, before stay-at-home guidance was introduced across the country.
