BERLIN, Conn. (WTNH)– If you’ve filled your vehicle with gas lately you’ve probably taken notice of the lower prices at the pump. According to experts, half of the gas stations in the United States are selling gas for less than $3.00 a gallon for regular unleaded.
The average price for regular gas in Connecticut is $3.36, which is $0.06 lower than last week. In July, Connecticut residents were paying an average of $3.96. Experts say the drop can be attributed to a decrease in the price of crude oil. However, some people remain skeptical, saying gas prices have gone down to make voters happy as the country approaches the mid-term elections.
Prices for mid-grade, super and diesel have also come down in recent weeks.
Some of the lowest gas in the state can be found at Citgo along the Berlin Turnpike for $2.93 for regular unleaded.
According to GasBuddy.com, the cheapest gas in Connecticut is in Hartford County, where the average is $3.25. The most expensive gas is in New London County at $3.46. These prices are still above the national average of $3.02 for regular unleaded.
