New York state’s average gas price is down a penny a gallon from last week to $2.21.

That’s according to the latest weekly survey by AAA Northeast.

Today’s price is 3 cents lower that a month ago and 47 cents cheaper than this time last year.

New York’s average price is 11 cents higher that the national average.

The average price in the Utica-Rome area is $2.29 a gallon, down a penny from last week.

“Typically, cheaper gas prices are an incentive for people to travel during a holiday weekend, but that is just not the case this year,” said Patti Artessa, Regional Director of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Northeast. “AAA forecasted a decrease in Thanksgiving travel year-over-year due to increasing COVID-19 positive case numbers, renewed quarantine guidelines and the latest CDC guidance. All of this has prompted Americans, who had plans to travel, to reconsider spending the holiday at home.”
