    Ever So Slow!

    The news reports WNY is the slowest part of the country for gas prices to fall. Politicians are looking into this.. Higgins why is this the slowest...?

    Regional gas prices keep slipping (ever so slowly)

    Gasoline prices have dropped another cent and a half in Western New York.

    A gallon of gas is selling for an average of $3.807 in Erie and Niagara counties this morning, according to the latest figures from the American Automobile Association.

    That's down from $3.823 a week ago.

    Gas prices have been slowly declining for the past month or so. The Buffalo average on June 28 was $3.852 per gallon, four and a half cents higher than now.

    AAA issues daily price estimates for metropolitan areas across the country, based on its analysis of credit-card purchases at self-service stations.

    It's not just Buffalo.
    Here, after a few weeks of steady but slight decreases from about 3.59 down to 3.25, it shot up to 3.49 the other day.. for no reason.....

    because the refineries raised their prices, so to off set the cost of future expense, gas stations raise their prices.

    bush left office at $1.85 a gallon

    obame hasnt seen less than $3.25

    The president doesn't set gas prices, ffs.

    The reason it went up is because the oil companies cut production which increases the cost. Don't blame Obama. Blame Wall Street

    Right. Exactly, EXCEPT, the President's policies and decisions can have an impact on Wall Street

    Go down NF Blvd. towards Robinson Rd . Gas is still around 3.81 gal. I would think the gas station owners are taking the people to the bank., I called Higgins office yesterday and the girl said he will look into it.

    Hamburg area seen $3.69 lowest I seen around so far. Price on a barrel has been falling everyday but not gas prices around here. Delta Sonic one of the cheapest stations around have not lowered prices in the last ten days. Two things going on around here from what Im told again the 2 brothers that own NOCO products on river rd are keeping the prices high and the gas station owners org don't want to budge on prices so they are all keeping all gas prices higher here.

    The retards over at Ch 2, you know , the ones holding people in power accountable, started looking into this years ago. After a series of comically idiotic reports that provided zero information they dropped it. Those of you who called Higgins office, be careful. The ringing phone can startle his staff when it awakens them. Please don't call during nap time which is most of the time for them.

    Genesee and Transit. Mobil $3.67 filled up today.. Mobil on Genesee and Union $3.80 so you have two stations same product two different owners but one is holding the price up. Holding prices high in this area on purpose I would have to believe so.
