Pain at the Pump: Gas soars over $6 a gallon in Katonah
Gas prices continue to climb, even hitting record highs recently.
According to AAA, the average price for gas in Westchester County is $4.75 a gallon for regular.
U.S. gas prices hit an all-time record this week at an average of $4.37 per gallon. But AAA is reporting that number went up another 5 cents overnight to $4.42. Diesel prices also hit a record $5.55 per gallon, but that's also now up to $5.56.
But, the Mobile station on Bedford Road in Katonah has regular gas for $6.39 per gallon.
Just yards down the road at the Exxon station, prices were the same.
Meanwhile, many people living in this area say they're always trying to find ways to save at the pump. "I am always on the lookout for the gas stations with the little bit lower price even if it's a penny difference," says Sally Corbett, of Katonah. "I go down county to work so what I try and do is plan so it's desperation if I go to one of these gas stations," says Rich Sklarin, of Goldens Bridge.
New York Attorney General Letitia James announced an investigation last week into whether or not the oil industry has engaged in price gouging.
