Gas prices rise around New York state

NEW YORK — Average retail gasoline prices in New York have risen 1.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.61 a gallon on Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 6,118 gas outlets in New York.

This compares with the national average, which has fallen 1.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.25 a gallon, according to the website GasBuddy.com.

Prices Sunday were 22.9 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 6.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago.

The national average has decreased 1.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 14.2 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

“With Thanksgiving behind us, it appears that a nominal decline in retail gasoline prices will ring in the first week of December for most parts of the country,” GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Gregg Laskoski said in a news release.

“With the government’s report of healthy fuel inventories and U.S. refinery output reaching its highest level since early October, the savings at the pump is coming just in time.”
