Connecticut gas prices rise higher than national average

Average Connecticut retail gasoline prices rose 3.9¢ per gallon in the past week, averaging $4.05 per gallon Sunday, Sept. 9. This compares with the national average that has increased 1.3¢ per gallon in the last week to $3.81 per gallon, according to gasoline price website ConnecticutGasPrices.com.
Including the change in gas prices in Connecticut during the past week, prices Sunday were 10.9¢ per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 12.7¢ per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 14.6¢ per gallon during the last month and stands 14.9¢ per gallon higher than this day one year ago.
“Even with Isaac long gone, the oil industry is still bringing capacity back online at refineries and oil rigs, which is keeping pressure on prices,” Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com’s senior petroleum analyst, said.
“Supply remains tight across the country as we slowly approach the transition to winter-spec gasoline, but I continue to be firm in believing that the national average will start to decline towards the end of September, as is typically the case,” DeHaan said.
