Connecticut Gas Prices Continue Dropping

Last week the price per gallon dropped three cents. Now they’re done another five.

The price of gas in Connecticut dropped nearly five cents in a week, averaging $4.07 for a gallon statewide according to the price tracking website Connecticut Gas Prices.  

A year ago, prices reached $4.23. The current national average is 27 cents cheaper than Connecticut at $3.80.  

While consumers might appreciate the respite in price hikes, summer is looming and the downward trend could change. 

"The national average now stands nearly 10-cents per gallon lower than the same date a year ago, but will we hear an end to complaining about gasoline prices at the pump?” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan in a statement. “Perhaps the rhetoric will wind down, but with summer around the corner, any sudden increase in price of gasoline will have Americans virtually calling for the heads of politicians in November."

"any sudden increase . . . will have Americans virtually calling for the heads of politicians in November"?!!!! Gas was $1.87 on Obama's Inauguration Day. We've been taken advantage of for 3 1/2 years while Obama said he could do nothing. When prices started coming down about three weeks ago, he suddenly announced that his new task force could magically "do something" so he could claim credit for the market finally cooling off a bit. He's gotta go.
