Gas prices continue their fall as the average price for a gallon of gas in New York now is at $3.87 and for Cortland County, it is much lower at $3.63 a gallon, one of the lowest averages in the state.
With the summer season now over and summer travels ending, prices are expected to stay in decline. AAA reports the decline continues due to oil prices dropping.
“Less expensive oil usually leads to less expensive gas for drivers,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “This trend has helped pump prices fall steadily for three straight months and, with fall approaching, more markets could soon see prices below $3 per gallon.”
Some prices in the Cortland/Homer area are even further below the county average with prices at $3.23 a gallon.
