New York’s Long Island County is likely to see its gas prices spike in 2017, according to a new study.
The study from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, a nonprofit focused on community energy, estimated that the average cost of a gallon of gas in New York City will increase by 11.3 cents per gallon between January 1, 2020 and December 31, 2025.
In comparison, the average price for a gallon in Connecticut will increase from $3.16 to $4.29, according the study.
In 2017, Long Island will experience a 12.7 percent increase in gas prices compared to a year ago, while the average increase for the entire state will be 8.7 cents per gas gallon, the study found.
However, gas prices in the Bay State have been on a downward trend for several years.
The price of a one-gallon of regular gas in June 2018 was $2.76, and a one million gallon in November 2020 was $3,079.
That was an increase of 5.6 cents per million gallons, according data from GasBuddy.com.
The average price of gasoline in June 2019 was $1.73 per gallon, a drop of 2.6 percent, according GasBuddys.com and the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation.
The most recent average price in Manhattan was $4,948 in May 2018, according to GasBuds.com, and average daily gas prices for June 2019 were $1,972.
