AAA Predicts Gas Prices Will Stay High Through Summer and into Fall

The national average gasoline price has tipped upwards, but the statewide average continued to drop over the last week, down to just more than $3.00 per gallon.

The average for the five-county Rochester region is $2.96, down two cents from last week. Buffalo is unchanged at $3.00, and Syracuse is up by a penny at $2.92.

The price drop is slowing because national gasoline supply is down and production has fallen a bit. Crude oil supplies are also dropping as gasoline demand stays high. 

The AAA expects gasoline prices to stay high through the summer and into the fall.
