Gas prices steady, poised for seasonal decline

New Yorkers Concerned over Rising Gas Prices

Prices at the pump in the state of Georgia sit at around $2.36 a gallon, more than 10 cents higher than this time a year ago.

High travel volumes over the holidays drove gas prices up this week locally and nationally.

The New York state average is $2.64, up 2 cents from last week. In Massachusetts, it's still 19 cents higher than at this time past year, when prices were averaging $2.29.

Statewide, the average price rose by 3.5 cents per gallon to $2.24, according to the survey.

Gas prices held steady during the first week of 2018 in Southwest Florida, and analysts say drivers can expect to see a seasonal slide in what they pay at the pump.
