JAMESTOWN – Gas prices are going up in and around the Jamestown area.
The increase is not just happening locally, but statewide and nationally as well.
New York’s average price is $2.51 while the national average is $2.42.
One year ago, the average price for a gallon of gas in New York was $2.66, and the national average was $2.48.
Experts say that although the national average price is only six cents different than it was one year ago, local prices still have a larger disparity compared to last year.
They say prices at the pump are increasing while gas demand is dropping.
