While we wait for the tax "holiday" in Buffalo and Western New York to get here on June 1st, prices around the area have gone up, again! As we start a new week and push toward Memorial Day, the prices have seemed to start rising.

According to Triple A, the average cost for a gallon of regular gas is now $4.35. That's up 13 cents in just the past week and is five cents more than this time one month ago.

The Tweet below was from last Friday and it has gone up since then!

I drive in on Route 5 each morning and was shocked to see $4.45 a gallon today! Both Erie County and Niagara County are preparing for a tax holiday that will cap the tax on gas at a certain price. This coincides with the same plan for New York State. But that won't happen for a few weeks and there is also a major driving weekend coming with Memorial Day. The good news, if there is any, is that perhaps with the better weather you won't leave the car idling as much and perhaps you can walk or take a bike to places that are closer to the house?
