Gas Prices Up 8 Cents
With gas prices approaching 3 dollars a gallon, Public Affairs Manager of AAA for Western and Central New York, Diana Dibble said she doesn't expect people to change their mode of transportation.
"With spring breaks and holidays coming up, people have a lot of destinations and driving is still cheaper than other transportation" Dibble said.
Gas prices are up 8 cents in the past month due to the increase in the price of crude oil as well as the switch from winter to spring because of the temperature of the oil underground.
"Traditionally speaking we would normally see prices level off and then possibly a push up once we get into Memorial Day," Dibble said about what we can expect in the near future.
