Obviously, you’ll be spending more for summer driving, with pump prices rising.

Triple-A is forecasting you’ll spend more than 70 dollars extra a month to fill up this summer.

That’s when you compare to where we were at this time last year.

Breaking down the numbers for Central New York, last year… The average driver spent about 285 dollars per month on gas. 

This year, that estimate’s jumping to more than 357 dollars.

The difference?  72 dollars and 78 cents per month.

Right now… Watertown is at the higher end of prices in our area… Averaging about three-dollars and ten cents a gallon… Compared to Ithaca…sitting at $2.97 per gallon.
