Late last week it was announced that New York State will temporarily suspend the gas tax statewide. This relief will begin on June 1, 2022 through December 2022. According to the New York Daily News, this gas tax "holiday" equates to approximately 16 cents per gallon.
In the meantime, if you are like me, we keep searching for the cheapest gas prices in the area. I have done some research for you and found 10 Capital Region gas stations with prices under $4.00.
According to Gas Buddy, the prices around the Capital Region are sitting in the lower $4 range. $4.33 in Patersonville and $4.35 in Amsterdam were on the higher side, even a $4.49 in Poestenkill. We are going to help you avoid those if at all possible.
Most prices in Schenectady, Troy and Albany are between $4.09 and $4.19 but we were able to find a few that fell below $4.00 for a gallon of regular grade gasoline. Prices could change at any moment. Scroll through the list below.
The cumulative effect is very impactful for people as they go to the pump and have that sense of stress in their chest when they think about the cost of the gas as they try to figure out if they’re going to be able to afford it for the day, Gov. Hochul
