Fuel prices are going back up after Memorial Day despite gas tax holiday: What can be done?

Gas prices are creeping back up again.

Consumers watching the price of a gallon of gas have noticed that despite a gas tax holiday initiated by New York State lawmakers- the price of gas is on the way up again.

This comes days after the gas tax holiday went into effect.

Some counties have even initiated their own gas tax reductions or caps.

None of that matters though for drivers who began seeing prices rise following the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

Last week it was reported that gas prices had declined by 10 to 15 cents. This week, gas prices have been seen increasing- between 5 and 10 cents depending on exact location in the Finger Lakes or Central New York.

“The price of gas is going up because the price of gas across the region and country is going up,” Monroe County Executive Adam Bello explained to News10NBC.

The wholesale price of gas has increased dramatically over the last 12 months, and lawmakers at the state and federal level have scrambled to put money back in drivers pockets.
