BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — The average price of gas in New York is up by a dime, and still higher than the national average.

  • U.S. average: $3.39/gallon ($2.16 in 2020)
  • NYS average: $3.53/gallon ($2.25 in 2020)

“With the U.S. economy recovering from the depths of the pandemic, demand for gas has gone up, but supply is tight,” AAA says. “Higher demand coupled with a decline in stocks, alongside elevated crude prices, has put upward market pressure on pump prices.”

Here are the average prices across upstate New York:

  • Batavia – $3.45 (up seven cents from last week)
  • Buffalo – $3.45 (up nine cents from last week)
  • Ithaca – $3.50 (up seven cents from last week)
  • Rochester – $3.50 (up eight cents from last week)
  • Rome – $3.51 (up seven cents from last week)
  • Syracuse – $3.48 (up nine cents from last week)
  • Watertown – $3.52 (up ten cents since last week)
