Earlier this week, we asked readers which town they thought had the most and least expensive gas prices in the Hamptons. According to our poll, 39 percent of readers thought that Montauk had the most expensive gas, while 41 percent of readers thought that Southampton had the least expensive.
None of our readers thought Water Mill had the most expensive, and only one person voted for North Sea & Noyack, Bridgehampton, and Northwest Harbor & Springs to have the most expensive. No one voted for Bridgehampton having the least expensive gas prices.
One reader commented on Facebook that the farther east you go, the more expensive the gas is. And he was just about right.
So, let’s take a look at some averages nearby.
- Montauk: $3.53
- Amagansett: $3.60
- East Hampton: $3.15
- Sag Harbor: $3.00
- Bridgehampton: $2.90
- Southampton: $2.82
- Water Mill: $2.80
Montauk came in as the most expensive by average and Water Mill as the least expensive. It’s worth noting that since these are just averages, there are gas stations that are cheaper than the lowest average of $2.80 in high-traffic areas of Southampton and East Hampton.
We did take out some of the smaller towns, given the lack of gas stations or nearby stations belonging more to a larger town.
Prices are based on data found on Google Maps as of September 22, 2017.
