Good news for penny pinchers across Western New York: gas prices have gone down one cent from last week. 

The national average price for regular unleaded gas is now $2.25 per gallon, down from last week's $2.26.

The New York State average is $2.41 per gallon, also down a penny from last week. 

It appears gas prices have started leveling out. According to the Energy Information Administration's report for the week ending on July 7th, gasoline demand did not hit an all-time high last week. 

The AAA Western and Central New York reported the average gas prices by city:

  • Buffalo - $2.34 (no change)
  • Rochester - $2.33 (down 1 cent)
  • Rome - $2.36 (no change)
  • Syracuse - $2.26 (down 1 cent)

South Carolina tops the list for least expensive gas at $1.97, while Hawaii has the most expensive at $3.05.
