Gas prices are on the rise in New York state.

The latest survey from AAA Northeast show New York’s average price is up five-cents from last week to $3.54 a gallon.

The Utica-Rome area’s average price is also up a nickel a gallon to $3.59

New York’s average price is five cents higher than a month ago and 18 cents higher than the national average.

“Uncertainty over Russia’s intentions toward Ukraine is contributing to higher crude oil prices, which are closing in on $90 per barrel,” says Patti Artessa, Regional Director of Public/Government Affairs. “Russia is a member of OPEC+, and any sanctions based on their actions toward Ukraine may cause it to withhold crude oil from the global market. Higher oil prices will lead to higher pump prices for drivers.”
