Prices of gasoline have seen their longest trend of falling prices since the beginning of the pandemic, but for Cortland County residents, that price decrease has been minimal.
Currently, the state average for a gallon of gas is now $4.66, but when you look at Cortland County’s average? It is still above $4.80 a gallon at $4.81.
Cortland County currently has one of the highest averages of a gallon of gas now in New York State. Only five other counties in the state have a higher average price for gas (including the NYC area).
The decline in prices nationally is from a steady decline in domestic demand for gasoline and a much lower price for oil globally.
AAA reports that prices are expected to drop below the $4 mark by the end of summer for most of the country.
