FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Connecticut fell to 10th in the weekly report by the American Automobile Association of states with the highest average gas prices in the region.
The average price for a gallon of gas in Connecticut fell two cents to $2.44. The national average fell four cents to $2.27 per gallon.
AAA’s weekly survey of prices in Connecticut’s four regional areas are:
- Greater Bridgeport/Stamford $2.53
- New Haven/Meriden $2.42
- Greater Hartford $2.42
- New London/Norwich $2.39
- Statewide Average: $2.44
Prices have been dropping slowly since earlier this month because the U.S. has increased its own production activities. Couple this with a decrease in driving demand, prices continue to drop at the pump. The increased U.S. production continues to offset OPEC’s recent efforts to rebalance the global oil through production cuts.
Ohio registers the lowest average at $2.072, followed by Indiana at $2.03. Hawaii continues to lead the pack with highest prices in the nation at $3.07 followed by California at $2.80.
