One less thing to complain about! Gas prices in Connecticut are falling hard and we couldn’t be happier.
Fairfield Daily Voice reports that our rank in the top 10 most expensive states is now in jeopardy. A good thing, obviously. It wasn’t that long ago since when we were leading the pack. Now, our wallets can heave a sigh of relief.
But if you were wondering if our prices are finally below the national average… I have some very bad news for you.
The American Automobile Association says Connecticut has ways to go before we get anywhere near that number. State prices slipped 2 cents over the past week. While our average is about $2.44 a gallon, the national average has dropped to $2.27.
If you live in the New London/Norwich area, congratulations! You have the lowest prices in the state!
Anyways, Connecticut is now the 10th worst state in terms of gas prices. Yes, we’re still hanging around the top 10, but we’re finally on the bottom half after god knows how long. So, we’ll take not being in the top three or five anymore.
And who knows! Maybe, just maybe, our rank will continue to sink like a stone as our nation continues to pump out its own oil.
But, if you want low prices now… move to Ohio. They’re the cheapest in terms of gas prices at the very low price of $2.00. But, if you want to walk down memory lane to when prices were well over 3 bucks, head over to Hawaii, who continue to dominate the list at $3.07.
So, who wants to bet gas prices will get even lower? Who wants to bet they’re skyrocket? Let us know in the comments below!
