Prices dip as we entered Labor Day weekend

MID-HUDSON – The price of gas took a massive spike upwards when Russia invaded Ukraine and that increase raising prices above $5 per gallon was explained away as an effect of the war.

Yet, as the invasion continues, the price of gas has begun a slow decline, in some places, dropping into the upper $3 per gallon range.

Typically, prices at the pump rise just prior to holidays as the gas companies try to increase profits when more people take to the roads, but they began to decline just before this Labor Day weekend, the unofficial last weekend of summer.

Regardless of the price, it does not appear to be slowing down the number of motorists on the road or their speed.
