Can someone please explain why gas prices are so high in Western New York? I travel to Atlanta, Ga., frequently and the cost of gas for the week of Oct. 31 was $3.07 a gallon, while in Western New York the price was $3.77 a gallon. Why in Western New York do we need to pay 70 cents more per gallon? What is the reason? We used to hear that taxes added more to a gallon here in New York, but allegedly are not in the current price. The price difference seems awfully extreme. Why?
