Gas prices continue to fall before Thanksgiving

  • Text size: + -

STATEWIDE -- Some good news for drivers depending on what part of the country you live in.

With the busy travel week ahead of Thanksgiving underway, gas prices continue to fall. That's according to the latest Lundberg survey.

The national average of a gallon of regular is $3.47, which is down $.07 in the past two weeks. Weaker demand this time of year is a contributing factor to gas prices right now.

Places that were affected by superstorm Sandy last month are seeing gas prices go up as New York City, Long Island, and New Jersey have seen gas rationing take place. On Long Island, the average for gas is $4.18, which is up $.25 from two weeks ago.

In Upstate New York, according to AAA, drivers in Albany are shelling out $3.78 a gallon, which is down $.02 from last week. Pittsfield drivers are paying about $3.66 a gallon.

Throughout the Hudson Valley, drivers are also paying more. Drivers in Newburgh and Pougkeepsie are paying as much as $3.95, and folks in Kingston are paying up to $3.89 per gallon.
