Nationwide the price of gas is falling according to Triple-A. The national average is now $3.67 a gallon. Here in Rochester, there's only been a slight decrease, and the average price of gas is still more than 4 dollars a gallon.
"I really haven't noticed," Fairport Resident Paul Sorbello said. "I keep looking and I haven't seen them go down."
This past month, the average price of gas in the Rochester area fell $.03. It's a tiny drop considering the national average dropped $0.15 cents in the same time period.
Bill Adams with the New York Gasoline Dealers Association explains.
"The terminals in New York anticipated a higher driving season after Labor Day, more driving and that didn't happen," Adams said. "Consequently we have more inventory."
Adams expects prices to fall significantly when dealers sell off the more expensive, summer gas blend.
"Prices are going down because the winter blend gasoline is part of the economy right now," Adams said. "It's cheaper to make the winter blend gasoline than the summer blend ... I think a lot of the dealers are going to be bellow $4 a gallon pretty soon."
"I look forward to it," Sorbello said.
He's counting the miles until he can ride the roads without blowing his budget.
Adams said barring any major catastrophe he expects gas prices to stay down for awhile.
