Connecticut Gas Prices Near One-Year High

The average price per gallon in the state increased more than 5 cents in a week

 

Gas prices throughout Connecticut keep getting more expensive. The $4.14 per gallon average is just a couple cents less than the one-year high from April, according to ConnecticutGasPrices.com.

Patrick DeHaan, an analyst at GasBuddy.com (the parent company of ConnecticutGasPrices.com) remains optimistic that prices will come down in the short term.

"The national average continues to hover near its higher ever September level," DeHaan said in a statement.

He added, "As we push deeper into September, the more optimistic I am that these high prices will begin to come down slightly, but with the recently announced [quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve], I'm a bit concerned that prices won't moderate as much as previously expected as the dollar weakens, leading me to believe 2012 will have featured the highest yearly average ever."

The national average per gallon is $3.82.

Oil is $97 a barrel and we're paying $4 a gallon. Five years ago oil was $140 a barrel and we paid $4.50 a gallon. Why? Why is gas in Southbury .15 cents higher per gallon?

Don't be silly. Clearly we need these higher gas prices to fund alternative and renewable energy companies. You know, companies like Solyndra. 0_o "President Obama’s Energy Secretary, Steven Chu who infamously said, “We have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.”" http://www.dividedstates.com/list-of-failed-obama-green-energy-solar-companies/
