Area Gas Prices Remain Steady

Gas prices in Jamestown are the same this week at $3.040 per gallon, according to AAA East Central’s Gas Price Report. Gasoline prices are up across the Mid-Atlantic and Northeast region on the week, while stable in some states — including New York. Following last week’s 1.2 million barrel build, the region saw the largest drop of any region in the country at 1.6 million this week according to Energy Information Administration data. The mid-atlantic and northeast region inventory level now measures 65.5 million, the lowest level recorded in the region in the month of June and a potential factor driving prices this week. The average price of gas for the Jamestown area last week was $3.039, while during the same period last year it was $2.439.
