Local gas prices are currently the highest they’ve been since 2015, according to AAA Northeast.
AAA officials say the rise in price is due to increasing demand and decreasing oil and gasoline inventories. Gas prices have risen 7 cents since last week, and they’re now the highest they’ve been since the summer of 2015.
According to AAA, as of today, the average gas prices in the Utica/Rome area are:
- Regular Unleaded: $2.85
- Midgrade Unleaded: $3.09
- Premium Unleaded: $3.35
- Diesel: $3.12
AAA says that the price of regular unleaded gasoline in New York State ranges from $2.79 in Genesee County to $3.05 in Rockland County.
