Hallelujah: One Hudson Valley City Still Has Gas Under $4/Gallon
You might have heard: the sky is blue, water is wet, and gas is expensive.
Nationally, the current average gas price is $4.19 per gallon, with New York State coming in even higher at $4.27 per gallon. But there's ONE city in the Hudson Valley that is somehow bucking this trend, with not one, not two, but THREE confirmed stations with prices under $4 per gallon.
Gas Prices in Dutchess County, NY
The worst offender for gas prices in the Mid-Hudson Valley seems to be Dutchess County. Gas stations in Beacon and Poughkeepsie both are currently advertising prices over $4.40 per gallon. That's why if you want to save money, you'll have to look on the other side of the river. Newburgh, NY currently has prices hovering around $4.20 per gallon, but the real savings is a bit further north.
Cheap Gas in Ulster County, NY
I'm proud to say that the cheapest gas stations are currently in my home county of Ulster. Even though it's roughly 30 miles from my hometown of Accord, NY, the price might make it worth it the next time I hit up the Hudson Valley Mall or Adam's Fairacre Farms (are those big enough hints for you?). Honestly, the first time I heard about the price, I didn't believe it. In a Facebook post from March 25th, a friend shared that the gas price was currently 3.95 per gallon. The good news is that not only was it true, but it's even cheaper now.
The Cheapest Gas is in Kingston, NY
More specifically, the cheapest gas is in the Kingston area, including Lake Katrine, NY. While the Quick Check-in Lake Katrine was reported to have the $3.95 per-gallon price tag, the Quick Check-in Kingston off the New York State Thruway on Washington Ave is listed as $3.79 per gallon as of publishing. The nearby Stewarts gas station was reported to be sitting at $3.99 per gallon as of today as well. In fact, GasBuddy lists four other stations in Kingston with sub-$4 prices.
