Need to fill your gas tank? Monday is the day to do it
Monday is the best day to buy gas in New York State, according to gas price app GasBuddy.
Prices here are lowest on
Mondays – as they are in 30 states, the company said. Its findings come from an analysis of prices from Jan. 1 through March 31. GasBuddy doesn’t attempt to explain why prices fluctuate the way they do.
Prices tend to spike on Wednesdays, making that the worst day to fill your tank. New York was one of just four states to see its highest prices on Wednesdays.
The average price of gas has increased 50 cents per gallon since January, according to GasBuddy.
In Buffalo on Monday, the average gas price was $2.66 per gallon, according to the app. That’s up 18 cents over the past month, although gas prices here still are 2 cents lower than they were a year ago.
Gas prices have been rising for eight straight weeks, said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy’s head of petroleum analysis, and he expects further price increases this week.
