Gotta fill the tank? Here's where to get the cheapest gas in Central New York.

AAA says that since Monday, the national average for a gallon of regular gasoline has increased by five cents to $2.36, which is eight cents more than a week ago, 20 cents more than a month ago, and 21 cents less than a year ago. Pump prices have increased while gas demand remains low at 7.53 million b/d, and total refinery utilization increased from 80.7 percent to 82 percent in the latest weekly report from the Energy Information Administration.

Gas prices are creeping up here too. The average in New York is $2.46/gallon. Today's average in Oneida County is $2.47 per gallon. Hey, it could be worse. Those in Michigan saw a price jump of 16 cents per gallon since Thursday!
