Highest Gas Price Average Ever in 2012

The average price per gallon in Connecticut has been on the decline.

The average price of gas throughout 2012 is likely to be the most expensive ever, according to the price tracking website GasBuddy.com.

"While the national average continues to fall, we've done the math- the yearly average in 2012 is all but guaranteed to set all time record highs," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst. "We still stand at $3.63 per gallon for a yearly average, and gasoline prices would need to average no more than $2.35 per gallon for every day left in 2012 for the national yearly average to drop below 2011, something that appears impossible."

In Connecticut, the average price per gallon dropped two cents in a week to $3.77. A month ago the price was $3.87.

Nationally, the average is $3.39.

Somebody has to pay for the high property taxes those gas stations are being levied on by the town.

It won't be long until, like the state of California, there is a mass exodus from the State of Connecticut.

This article is about the NATIONAL average price for gasoline in 2012. It has nothing to do with any specific state.

Careful Mike, the article police are watching opinions that they feel don't reflect their values.
