Gas prices are trickling down in Western NY. The average price for a gallon of regular is 3.71 in Batavia which is down 4 cents from last week and 11 cents from last month.

Lower demand and a falling oil barrel price are driving the prices down slowly as we head to the middle of autumn and into the winter.

Buffalo Bills player Damar Hamlin is setting up a scholarship program in honor of the hospital workers who saved his life.
