Today marks the 1000th consecutive day that gas prices have been over the $3.00 mark. Triple-A Central New York Regional Manager Ed Welsh says this is the first time on record that gas prices have been this high for this long.

Gas prices first passed the three dollar mark in December 2010.

Since the current streak began, 913 of the 1000 days have seen gas prices above $3.25.  Prices have been above $3.50 for 643 days and above $3.75 for 189 days.

Welsh added that on the plus side, with better fuel economy in vehicles and more financially responsible consumers, gas usage is actually down across the country.

The current average for gas in the Utica-Rome area is $3.83 per gallon. That price has been holding steady for about a week.
