N.Y.: Will high gas prices affect your summer travel plans?

BUFFALO N.Y. — You may not have noticed but gasoline prices have steadily gone up over that past several months. The AAA of Western & Central NY is predicting that gas will reach the $3/gallon mark this year (possibly by Memorial Day).

Right now, the average price of gas in New York State is $2.89 and the average in Buffalo is $2.79. One year ago, gasoline was $2.42/gallon.

The increases are being caused by OPEC production cuts, lower supplies, and the switch over to summer blends that always creates a bump-up in price each year.

    Gas and diesel is still cheap. As it goes up people will stay closer to home and look for seasonal sites. Now if steel (RV frames) and aluminum (RV framing) rise enough it may slow RV sales as prices rise. Already CGs are rising nightly prices to be near the cost of a nice room. Don’t be angry if I say I would not be unhappy if all those things happen to slow the sales of new units. Maybe builders would bring a little QC back into their plans.
