FAIRFIELD COUNTY, Conn. -- Fairfield County drivers may be feeling even more pain than usual at the pump: Connecticut has now overtaken California as having the highest gas prices in the continental United States this week, GasBuddy.com announced in a statement Friday.

Connecticut's average price of $4.030 per gallons ekes past California’s average of $4.025 per gallon, said Tom Kloza of GasBuddy.com in a statement.

In a set of “fascinating facts,” which may or may not make you feel better about what you are paying, Kloza also said:

  • Four states are averaging more than $4 per gallon: Hawaii at $4.364 per gallon, Alaska at $4.072 per gallon, Connecticut at $4.030 per gallon and California at $4.025 per gallon. Last year at this time, only one state was averaging more than $4 per gallon – Hawaii.
  • Hawaii is the only state reporting 100 percent of its stations charging more than $4 per gallon. Also, 63 percent of that state is charging more than $4.25 per gallon.
  • At 70 cents more than the national average, Hawaii has the highest average of the 50 states. South Carolina has the lowest prices in the country at $3.33 per gallon, or 32 cents less than the national average.
  • The streak of rising gas prices has slowed down – the last four days have even see slight decreases in price every day, settling in at $3.66 per gallon Friday.
  • Minnesota is the only state reporting prices lower now at $3.262 per gallon than last year -- by 3 cents. Hawaii has the biggest year-over-year differential, at 21 cents higher now at $4.364 per gallon than prices last year at $4.155 per gallon.
