How Are the Gas Prices Where You Live?
If you spend a lot of time driving here in the Hudson Valley, you have probably noticed that gas prices are all over the place.
If you really look around you can save almost .25 to .30 cents per gallon.
I live in Fishkill and there must be like 5 gas stations within a 2 mile radius and the prices are way higher at a few and really cheap at the others. I got gas yesterday for $2.12 a gallon at one gas station and the one right down the street was at $2.41 a gallon. Why is there such a big difference? I mean is it price gouging or just bad business?
If you are in Ulster County gas prices are always like .25 cents cheaper than in any of the other counties. Can you tell me why? I think it has something to do with the tax in each county but I could be wrong.
According to the Daily Freeman, the average gasoline prices in New York are averaging $2.34 per gallon.
The good news here is that prices are 89.4 cents per gallon lower than they were one year ago and are 3.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
The national average has fallen 11.4 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 72.1 cents per gallon lower than this day a year ago.
