According to AAA, gasoline prices are once again on the rise in New York State, having shot up 14 cents to $3.82 from just a week prior.
The jump comes following several weeks of declining prices. A year ago at this time the average in the Empire State was $3.55. Data from the Energy Information Administration showed that gas demand increased though it remains lower than a year prior.
To conserve their gas, motorists are advised to map routes, avoid peak traffic times for travel, and combine errands into one trip while using cruise control when possible.
