CHENANGO COUNTY – Local gas prices are finally below $2 per gallon. And large disparities between prices around Norwich and elsewhere in the county have narrowed. But where do prices at Chenango County’s pumps rank when compared to the rest of the nation? They are still high.
According to the Fuel Gauge Report, an online ranking of gas prices compiled daily by the American Automobile Association, New Yorkers are paying the highest price per gallon of any other state in the continental United States. While the national average hovers at $1.65, the Empire State’s average is 34 cents higher at $1.99 per gallon for regular unleaded.
Only motorists in Alaska and Hawaii are paying more.
