gas prices

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.

The average price for a gallon of gas in the city has risen to $4.08, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report.

Over the past month the cost of gas has jumped 17 cents.

For much of the year, drivers were paying less for gas than a year ago. But as prices have steadily risen, the cost has zoomed past what New Yorkers were paying last year when gas was $3.97 per gallon.
