I can't remember the last time gas was close to being under $3 a gallon. I noticed the sign on my way to work this morning. Despite the drop at the pumps, Utica still sees higher prices that most of the nation. Even Syracuse has lower prices.

Triple A’s Ed Welsh told WIBX he’s not surprised. 'The way Utica’s pricing is structured keeps the prices higher and some of that has to do with the fact the volume of gas sold is lower here.'

Gas prices haven't dropped below $3 since December 2010.

South Carolina and Tennessee are paying the lowest prices, while to no one's surprise, New York has the highest prices. California drives actually saw prices drop below $3 a gallon in late October.
