It’s a sight for sore eyes. For the first time in monthgas prices have once again fallen below $4 a gallon…at least at one gas station in the Hudson Valley.

Gas Prices in Hudson Valley, NY

It’s no secret that gasoline prices have been a hot topic for quite some time. It’s even inspired some people to convert their vehicles to use E85 fuel to save tens of dollars on every fill-up (read more about that here). But while some Ulster County stations are still in the $4 range (I’m looking at you, New Paltz), there are at least a convenience store brave enough to bring their prices back to pre-summer numbers.

Remember in 2020 when gas was in the $2 range?? (Google)

Cheap gas in Accord, NY

I nearly crashed my car when I did a double take on Highway 209 in my hometown of Accord, NY in Ulster County. My childhood gas station, the one I used to ride my bike to when I needed my candy fix, was ahead of the pack when it came to low gas prices. Effective today, August 5, 2022, regular gasoline is $3.97 a gallon at the Kwik Mart Sonoco in Accord. If you need an address, this is it. But is it really the only station in the region to dive so low?

Just eight months ago, gasoline cost $3.33 a gallon in Marlboro (Google)

Lowest gas prices in New York

According to, while the Accord, NY Sonoco may be the cheapest in the area, it’s not the cheapest in the state. You can find a more detailed map of where to find cheaper gas outside of the Hudson Valley here, and it may be worth a look, as the current low price of gas throughout New York State is currently $3.80 per gallon. It’s not the $0.99 a gallon of the early 2000s, but hey, we’ll take it.
