NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) – Gasoline prices have increased nationally over the past week but in New Haven where prices are higher than the national average the increase was smaller. According to Gasbuddy prices in the New Haven area increased 0.7 cents per gallon compared to a 3.3 cent per gallon increase nationally.
Gasbuddy’s survey shows an average price of $2.28 per gallon in New Haven and $2.25 nationally.
According to Gasbuddy there is good news ahead. Patrick Dehaan, Senior Petroleum Analyst for Gasbuddy says “Moving forward, oil may be on shaky ground as signs emerge that Opec may not cut production as they indicated two weeks ago. The Saudis recently cut crude oil prices to some customers for November delivery, a fresh sign the Kingdom is staying aggressive about market share. This could lead to some relief as we head towards the holidays.”
