Gas prices continue downward trend, but that’s about to come to an end

Gas prices continued to decline this past week across the region, according to AAA.

During the week of Christmas the price of a gallon of gas declined 6 cents. It brought the actual average price to $3.51 per gallon.

Those savings are expected to be wiped out in the next week, as the state’s gas tax holiday comes to an end.


Last week when Governor Kathy Hochul was asked about extending it – as some lawmakers in the state have requested – she said the revenue from that tax is essential to maintenance.

Before the gas tax holiday, which saves around 20 cents per gallon, the region hit an all-time record at $4.99 per gallon.

Prices fell steadily after the gas tax holiday was made official, but now concerns are on the rise 2023 may start expensive for those commuting or traveling.

The state still has time to extend the gas tax holiday if Hochul or lawmakers have a chance of heart.
