Over the weekend, the price for a gallon of regular gas dipped just below $3.50 at a few stations in Broome and Tioga counties.

Some people visiting the Southern Tier from other parts of New York state expressed surprise at the local gas prices. A western New York couple said the cost of fuel near their home was significantly higher.

According to the AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report, the average price for a gallon of regular in the Binghamton area was about $3.62. That’s nearly 12 cents lower than in the Buffalo market and 22 cents lower than in New York City.

Prices in Pennsylvania are lower than in New York state. According to the AAA survey, the average price per gallon in the Scranton area is about $3.43.
