Gas prices returned to pre-Sandy levels.

After a month of wild fluctuations post-Sandy, New York City gas prices have settled back to where they were before the storm.

Prices at the pump jumped 15 cents in the aftermath of the storm, before slowly retreating to $4, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report, the same price drivers were paying last month.

Over the past week the cost of gas dropped 6 cents.

While gas prices shot up in New York after the storm, costs nationally fell. Over the past month, the average throughout the country dropped 13 cents.

Motorists in the area are still paying significantly more to fill up than last year when prices were $3.71.
