Connecticut Gas Prices Continue Dropping

Last week the price per gallon dropped three cents. Now they’re down 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."

Prices drop from $ 4.05, whereas a couple months ago they were $ 3.80s. In 1999, they were about $ 1.05. Then BUSH - CHENEY - ROCKEFELLER took IRAQ OIL off the SPOT MARKET.

typical George it's not that simple OK. Just look how much oil China, and India was buying in 1999. By the by, we have enough OIL right here if we can get the LIBTARDS to get out of the F'ing way.

There are several places in town selling for less than $4 a gallon according to the Stratford Patch commute section. http://stratford.patch.com/commute
