Still, it can get pretty warm in New York State. While temperatures rarely reach 100-plus degrees, we have our fair share of heat and humidity. It's made more difficult to get intense heat, since the state is surrounded by water bodies.

Lake Erie, Lake Ontario, the Finger Lakes and the Atlantic Ocean help keep things manageable in the summer months.

Have you ever wondered though, which town or city is the warmest in the entire State of New York? You could even ask "which place" is the warmest?

According to Cheapism, the warmest town or city in New York is in fact, New York City.

The warmest place period, on average, is La Guardia Airport, which averages 1 degree higher than the rest of the city at 63 degrees.

I never would have imagined that an airport of all places is the warmest place in the state (on average), but I guess it makes sense since here in Buffalo, we get weather updates from our airport.

New York City typically does not get as cold as other regions of the state, although it does get its share of below freezing temps and snow...just not as much as places like Buffalo, Syracuse and Oswego.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
