The gas prices are still very high and before we know it, summer will be here and we are going to want to travel. Not only will we have to worry about gas prices, but the New York State Thruway isn't cheap to drive. One lawmaker is proposing a bill that would make the NY Thruway toll-free this summer.
If you travel the New York State Thruway, you know it can get pretty expensive. There may be some relief in sight. There is legislation to give the Thruway tolls a break and to offset the high gas prices. Not only will it help motorists, but it will also help with local tourism.
If you have traveled the New York State Thruway at all, you know that there are many rest areas closed. A lot of them only have gas available and no restrooms. If you are traveling during the Christmas holiday with children, it's only going to get more difficult. These Thruway rest area renovations will go well into 2023.
We’re all used to snow here but we know Buffalo has it much worse. A storm yesterday dumped at least 19 inches closing a ten mile stretch of the Thruway (I-90). People have been trapped on the road in their cars for nearing 16 hours!
