Connecticut gas prices drop

Average gasoline prices in Connecticut have dropped a penny compared to last week, according to AAA Northeast.

AAA’s July 13 survey of prices in the Nutmeg State has also found the average price of a gallon of self-serve, regular of $2.93  is about the same compared to last month; and $1.04 cheaper than this time last year.

Today’s national prices are averaging $2.77, a half cent higher than last week; but 3 cents lower than last month and last year.
