Prices of gas continue their downward trend throughout the Country and for Cortland County the average price for a gallon of gas is now below $4 a gallon of gas.
In some areas of Cortland County prices have fallen to nearly $3.70 a gallon. With stable oil prices and a modest domestic demand for gas led to prices to continue to fall, according AAA.
“Drivers are now benefiting from gas prices that are $1.11 less than their peak in mid-June,” said Andrew Gross, AAA spokesperson. “But now we need to keep an eye on the weather as hurricane season arrives. These storms can affect prices by disrupting oil production in the Gulf of Mexico and impacting large coastal refineries.”
