Price of Gas Rises in New York City

The price of gasoline is rising again just in time for one of the biggest travel weekends of the year so far: Memorial Day weekend. 

A gallon of regular gas will cost you as much as $5 in Manhattan. A Mobil station on 11th Avenue in Hell's Kitchen raised its prices Tuesday to $4.999 a gallon for regular. 

Fox 5 reports, however, that even the 11th Avenue station is pricey for the city, where at the same time the Mobil station raised its price to $5, the average regular gallon in the five boroughs cost about $3.18.

New Jersey still has less expensive fuel, even after agreeing to raise its gas tax in 2016 for the first time in 30 years. 

In the Garden State, just $3 will get you a gallon of reg-ya-luh — plus full service, of course.

AAA says the national average for regular gas is rising. Today it stands at about $2.93 per gallon, which is 12-cents higher than two weeks ago.
