Average gas prices across the country have remained stable, despite the usual increase during this time of year, according to AAA.
However, Connecticut ranks among the top ten largest yearly increases for average gas prices.
AAA reports that Monday’s national average price for regular unleaded gasoline is $2.29 per gallon.
Connecticut comes in at $2.39 for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline, which is 40 cents higher than the average price of gas on this same date last year. Along with the price surge in Connecticut, other states such as Washington have seen up to a 61 cent increase.
The prices across the state vary; Bridgeport has an average of $2.46, New Haven at $2.37 Hartford at $2.36, and New London at $2.34.
These prices differ greatly with the nation’s top ten least expensive markets. Ranging from South Carolina at $2.01 to Missouri with $2.10, Connecticut faces a steep fee for gas.
Gasoline in the country may see changes, after last week’s OPEC’s Joint Technical Committee meeting. The JTC met to “review compliance and participant’s level of adherence to the production cut agreement,” said AAA Allied Group of Greater Hartford.
