Gas Prices Drop 4 Cents in a Week

The average price per gallon in Connecticut began to decline but still remains well over $4.


Connecticut gas prices dropped from $4.14 to $4.10 in a week, according to price tracking website ConnecticutGasPrices.com. The current national average is $3.81 per gallon.

“The national average has begun to drop nicely over the last week, and while it certainly doesn't feel like much, it is noteworthy,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior analyst at GasBuddy.com, the parent company of ConnecticutGasPrices.com.

He added, “Oil prices were all over the map last week, closing in on $100/bbl one day and dropping to $92/bbl later in the week. I've probably had more double takes watching oil prices in the last week than I've had all summer.”

It's amazing to me how much attention gas prices get every single day in the media. How about finding out why/when/how food manufacturers started slowly and deceitfully giving us less product for the same prices (or more). For example, I see packages of cheese slices at S&S with 11 slices instead of 12. Who puts 11 slices in a package? Or canned goods. Notice that many are no longer 12 ounces now. Slightly less. It's insidious. Why is a 4 cent drop in GAS big news?
