UTICA, N.Y. – Gas prices in New York continue to skyrocket, increasing by 25 cents in the past week to an all-time state high of $4.65 on average.

The average price per gallon in the Utica-Rome area has also jumped 14 cents in the past four days to $4.61, according to statistics from AAA. As of Thursday afternoon, some prices were already as high as $4.79.

The prices have reached record-breaking highs each day this week, following a temporary reprieve since the initial spike in March.

The state and local gas tax caps are scheduled to go into effect June 1, which could bring prices down by 20 to 25 cents.
