CT Average Gas Price Exceeds $4 Again

One expert says gas prices in Connecticut and the rest of the country will be going on a diet.

Gas prices in Connecticut topped $4 for the second time this year, with the average gallon costing $4.03. Prices rose three cents in a week and 18 cents in a month, according ConnecticutGasPrices.com.

The national average is $3.80 a gallon, but these prices could decline soon. 

"With the conclusion of the summer driving season, we can expect gasoline prices to go on a diet," said Patrick DeHaan, an analyst at GasBuddy.com, the parent company of ConnecticutGasPrices.com.

He added, "Like all diet programs, you may not see immediate loss in the short term, but we'll likely see some loss in the longer term, say the next several weeks, as factors align in motorists favor- specifically as [Hurricane] Isaac has exited without much ado, demand to see seasonal decline, and with cheaper to produce winter-spec higher RVP [Reid vapor pressure] gasoline coming, there's light at the end of the tunnel.”

Gasoline was $ 1.84 a gallon when Barack Obama became President of the United States (national average).

Yes! And they reached their 5 year historic peak during the summer of 2008! Oh wait, that was under Bush... But regardless... the earth is still flat; education is a subversive national attack on our National Security; a "Certificate of Live Birth" is not the same as a Birth Certificate, and Government is too Big, UNLESS it happens to be penetrating you to provide you with the ultrasound that it believes you should have.

I, like, Dr. Appleby, understand that the president controls the weather and can make hurricanes in the gulf appear or disappear at whim!

"Gasoline was $ 1.84 a gallon when Barack Obama became President of the United States (national average)." That is absolutely right. It went up with a democratic congress who began to tax and spend feverishly. The value of the dollar declined and the cost in petrodollars increased. These losers who simply attack Dr. Appleby are typical idiots of the libs: insult and condemn anyone who has something different to say, treat him like a traitor and rant. They must be the garbage that runs this idiotic state and educated here. Don't worry, not for long though.

ABC - The light you shine on the debate is purely brilliant. Thank you.

Obama's Arab Spring has lead to an American bloody fail. With no reaction again to attacks on American soil at U.S. embassies. Shades of Jimmy Carter.
