Albany, NY – Gasoline prices have dropped the past couple of weeks. But a new survey finds that just a small number of New Yorkers view the decline as beneficial.

The Siena Research Institute's Douglas Lonnstrom says with prices as high as they are, a slight drop makes little difference.

Lonnstrom says 44 percent of those questioned believe gasoline prices will once again increase over the next six months.

He says a vast majority -- some 90 percent -- are concerned about the impact of home heating costs this coming winter.
