Even with summer approaching, gas prices have dropped for most of the Hudson Valley.

You're probably looking forward to summer and all that comes with it, especially vacations and road trips. Besides traffic, the thing that stinks the most about driving is gas prices (at least in my opinion). Thankfully, gas prices for the past week in the majority of the Hudson Valley dropped.

The Daily Freeman reports that the statewide gas price average remained pretty steady. It stayed at $2.91 per gallon, whereas the national average had dropped to $2.81 per gallon, down 1.6 cents from the prior week. The statewide average was 3.5 cents per gallon lower than a month prior. It was 15.6 cents lower than a year ago.

According to the Daily Freeman, in Ulster County, the average gas price dropped to $2.81 per gallon, which was four cents lower than the previous week. It dropped two cents in Dutchess County, down to $2.97 per gallon. The average price per gallon was $2.84 in Greene County, two cents lower from the week prior. However, the average gas price rose in Columbia County by three cents, bringing it up to $2.82 per gallon.
