New Haven, Conn. (WTNH) – Although you might have noticed a slight increase in gas prices in the past week, prices at the pump are significantly lower than they were during Memorial Day weekend a year ago.
According to Triple A, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded in Connecticut is one dollar and ten cents less than it was last year. Those lower prices are one reason Triple A expects more than 37 million Americans to drive more than fifty miles during the upcoming holiday weekend. That’s an increase of more than five percent over 2014.
The travel agency also expects more of us to take planes, trains and buses than a year ago.
