. released his most recent survey of gasoline prices on November 30, which is the first he released since Hurricane Sandy. According to the gasoline survey, prices for the South Fork declined 2 cents since late September, on Long Island prices declined 13 cents and statewide prices decreased by 18 cents since the last survey. The study found South Fork prices are 16 cents above the State average and 10 cents above the Long Island average.
Thiele stated, "The average price for East Hampton and Southampton excluding Amagansett and Montauk is now $4.05. The average price for Amagansett and Montauk is $4.43. A gallon of gas on the North Fork is now about $3.90."
Thiele has continued to call for action on legislation to strengthen New York's law on zone pricing of gasoline as recommended by the State Attorney General. Thiele said, "The Assembly
has overwhelmingly passed my bill which was recommended by the State Attorney General. We now need the Senate to follow suit. While the current zone pricing legislation has generally pressured wholesale gasoline suppliers to minimize price differences based solely on geography, it is clear pricing fixing is still occurring."
