Armonk Residents Pay the Price at the Pump

ARMONK, N . Y. - It’s tough for anyone to convince themselves that four dollars per gallon of gas is cheap. Compare that to gas prices in Armonk, though, and four dollars doesn’t seem so bad.

With gas prices hovering around $4.50 per gallon at both the Shell and Sunoco stations on Main Street, Armonk resident Paul Harkins has made it a point to avoid paying too much at the pump.

“It’s high because you can literally drive to Pleasantville which is a mile and a half from here and you’re paying about $4.04,” said Harkins. “Pleasantville is close enough so while people do their shopping or something there, they’ll fill up.”

Currently, the average cost of gas per gallon in New York is $4.02 for regular. According to MotorTrend.com the lowest gas price in Pleasantville Friday was $4.01 at a Shell station on Manville Road.

Harkins, who is the owner of landscape design company Dream Gardens, doesn’t think the high prices have anything to do with Armonk’s wealth but rather that the stations are situated right off Interstate 684.

“My opinion for the high prices is because it’s right off 684 and when people are traveling they have to get gas,” Said Harkins. “You just pull off the exit, the stations are right there and if you need gas you’re going to pay the price.”

Harkins says the prices, which have been high for some time now, don’t show any signs of decreasing.

“As long as gas prices stay around four dollars Armonk’s will probably stay right around $4.50,” said Harkins.

Harkins says friends that live in Armonk, more often than not, will leave town to fill-up. Unless the stations in town decide to compete with prices in nearby towns.
