Connecticut Gas Prices Near One-Year High

The average price per gallon in the state increased more than 5 cents in a week


Gas prices throughout Connecticut keep getting more expensive. The $4.14 per gallon average is just a couple cents less than the one-year high from April, according to ConnecticutGasPrices.com.

Patrick DeHaan, an analyst at GasBuddy.com (the parent company of ConnecticutGasPrices.com) remains optimistic that prices will come down in the short term.

"The national average continues to hover near its higher ever September level," DeHaan said in a statement.

He added, "As we push deeper into September, the more optimistic I am that these high prices will begin to come down slightly, but with the recently announced [quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve], I'm a bit concerned that prices won't moderate as much as previously expected as the dollar weakens, leading me to believe 2012 will have featured the highest yearly average ever."

The national average per gallon is $3.82.

Thats what you get with quantatatve easing. Inflated asset and commodity prices. If you blame obama for gas....you need to credit him for stock price rise. If you cant credit him for stocks you shouldnt blame for gas prices. Ussue debt/ print money - the money creates appreciation. From my perspective, if you believe what his party rants about - that trickle down doesnt work and he is fighting for middle class...then what has occurred is the ecact opposite of his aim. Gas prices hurt middle class most, and stock market appreciation benefits the people he dislikes and flies in the face of his rhetoric. I think obama has no idea how the private sector works. His lens is completely limited to what government effects.

I KNOW TOMMY when gas prices were up during BUSH it was the OIL MONGERS like Chaney. Just for the record under the O MAN gas is higher and for a much linger time. So i guess the dems figure the poor do not drive or heat their homes. WAIT YOU ARE RIGHT THEY PAY NO TAXES AND KENNEDY GIVES THEM HOME HEATING OIL. He even pumps it for them. Look in the MIRROR FOR THE DEFINITION OF DUMB!!!

Hey Tom Aquinas-- Its funny when you imply Im dumb....then credit Obama for stock market. You are the same exact person who blames Bush for the economy. And while you never have the intellectual capacity to be able to articulate thing, in a meaningful manner; never once answer a real question with a real answer (same thing about your 'combat record') I just would love for you to demonstrate your intelligence once-, and educate me on real issues. How is the economy Bush's fault ( calling the current state of the economy "this mess") but the stock market Obama's credit. I may be dumb as you say--so it would be truly wonderful if you were able to explain how the 2 things end up with different attrributions , in your mind. Tarp is a good thing? Or a bad thing? Stimulus good /bad? Quantative easing and the role of the fed in all of this? Tax policy? Rhetoric? Regulations? If you could be so kind as to explain, I would love it. But the norm has been for you to 1-call me a bigot or an idiot 2- blame bush for all that is bad in this world (without much explanation ? which policies caused the crash) and try to pigeon hole republicans for being narrow minded (obama was caught on video /mic a few odd times "people who go to guns and religion are stupid" he says "I will address nuclear proliferation agreements after the election when I dont have to worry about politics --to the Russian P). I am all for being educated Tom. Wanna help?
