On a national level, gas prices have seen a decrease because there was a slight decrease for the cost of oil, according to CNY Central. While costs remain lower on the West Coast, the same can’t be said for all of New York. Western New York has no change in the average cost per gallon, but Central New York has increased.
Today, oil prices were between $89 and $96 per barrel, which is an increase from the $91 to $98 they were one week ago.
