BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The average price for a gallon of gas in Buffalo dropped to under $2.20, while prices nationally are increasing.

According to AAA of Western and Central New York, the average price for a gallon of gas stands at $2.19 in Buffalo, down two cents from last week, and down to $2.20 in Batavia, a one cent decrease from last week.

Nationally the average price for a gallon of gas increased three cents from last week to $1.88.
