Highest Gas Prices Are On Long Island

HICKSVILLE, NY (WCBS 880) – The national average price for a gallon of mid-grade gasoline is $3.05, according to the Lundberg Survey, and prices are rising.

WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs reports

But the highest prices are right in our area, on Long Island, where a gallon of regular gasoline goes for $3.21 and as high as $3.89 at some stations.

“Last time I saw, it was like $3.05. Now, on the gas station down the block, it’s $3.19!” one man told WCBS 880 Long Island Bureau Chief Mike Xirinachs.

“I just paid $3.19 and this is cheaper because I live out in Suffolk and it was $3.29 around the corner from my house,” another man said.

“They’re not going to be $4.00. I can guarantee you that,” said one woman. “I hope.”

Gas prices are at a two-year high. A stronger economy and more investment in crude oil are given as the reasons.

    Time to call upon our elected officials to start monitoring for price gouging.

    Not that they’ll actually do anything…but they should be put to task.
