Drivers face rising gas prices citywide

Posted: Updated:
THE BRONX -

Bronx drivers are feeling the pain at the pump as gas prices continue to rise in New York City and nationwide.

The Bronx is currently seeing an average of about $3.07 a gallon. An Exxon station off of East Tremont and Castle Hill avenues was pumping out regular gas at $3.03 a gallon late Monday afternoon. Some stations on major parkways had prices set at nearly $4 a gallon.

The average for New York state is about $2.95 a gallon.

Residents say they're frustrated with the increasing prices, especially as Memorial Day and summer are approaching.

One year ago, average gas prices were around $2.62 a gallon in the city. It was at $2.85 a month ago.
