JAMESTOWN – The price for a gallon of gas continues to inch up both across western New York and the country as a whole.

The price in Jamestown, according to GasBuddy.com, sits at $2.83, up four cents from last week.










Experts with AAA say if higher crude oil prices continue, drivers can expect incremental price increases — of at least nickel — at their local gas stations in March.

Saying motorists have yet to see any relief from gas price spikes following outages at Gulf Coast refineries.





The national average is $2.77 and New York’s is $2.83. Last year at this time, the national average was $2.39, while New York’s was $2.57.

  1. Thank you Joe Biden for shutting off the pipelines and our oil production so we can buy foreign oil, which has to be shipped from overseas (wasting resources & making us pay higher prices at the pump).

    It’s gone up $0.50 since the inauguration…. Now it takes $20 extra to fill my tank.

    Get ready, it’s going to go higher, and when that happens, everything else goes with it.
