JAMESTOWN – Gas prices continue to rise across the nation and at home as experts blame side-effects from the Russia-Ukraine conflict for the hike.

Last week, the average price for gas in Jamestown was $3.69. This week, AAA reports the average price for gas in Chautauqua County is $3.85 a gallon.

As you head north to fill up in the Buffalo area, the price is nearing $4 clocking in at $3.91. Statewide, the average price for gas is $3.92 in New York.

Officials say since Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by 11 cents to $3.72.

An increase in gas demand, alongside a reduction in total supply, is contributing to price increases, but increasing oil prices continue to play a leading role in pushing prices higher.

Pump prices will likely continue to rise as crude prices continue to climb.
