As of today, the average price of gas in New York State stands at $3.48/gallon. This is now up 6 cents from last month and down 81 cents from last year. Not surprisingly, the trend is picking up for the spring season, but it’s great to see the big drop from 2022.

The national average remains around the same mark at $3.51/gallon, though it was up 7 cents just a week ago. This mark is down 68 cents from last year.

Seeing the big drop is good, but new information tells us we could soon be back to paying over $4/gallon by this summer.

The first two factors, similar to what we saw last year, relate to the strong demand for gasoline and the increase in the price of oil at this time of the year. AAA spokesman Andrew Gross says these factors will cause our current increase during the spring.

Oil prices finally peaked and are now above $70 per barrel after several weeks of hovering just below it.

The new information comes from the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), who say they are cutting their oil production by more than 1 million barrels a day. This could significantly increase prices in the coming months.

AAA expects gas prices to rise between 10 and 15 cents ahead of the summer driving season. Experts at Fox Business News say the average price could reach $4/gallon by summer. Although it is up from what we are seeing now, our current price is still much lower than what we saw in 2022.
