HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH)- If you’ve filled up your car lately you’ve probably noticed the low prices at the pump. The national average dropping below $2 for the first time in years, and experts say this is just the beginning. Experts say it could drop even further.
“It’s really a matter of supply and demand,” said Amy Parmenter, AAA Spokesperson. “The price at the pump is expected to remain low – and possible drop even further over the next few weeks – because fewer people are driving and supplies are plentiful.”
AAA reports the average cost per gallon nationally is $1.97, while here in Connecticut it is $2.08 in Hartford and New Haven, $2.09 in New London and $2.19 in Bridgeport. According to AAA, the national average is the lowest it’s been since March of 2009.
The most expensive gas is in California, where the average price is $2.86.
