For the second consecutive week, there’s been very little or no movement of gas prices on the statewide and national levels, says AAA Northeast.
Today, Connecticut gas prices stay at $2.19, the same as they were last week. They are 51 cents lower compared to this time last year.
The National average of $2.19 is up slightly — less than a penny — compared to last week and 46 lower cents compared to last year.
“Even as our national inventory declines, low demand has either helped pump prices drop or hold steady,” said Fran Mayko, AAA Northeast spokeswoman. “We expect this action to continue into the fall as domestic crude prices drop because of global reactions to worldwide pandemic concerns .”

Greater Bridgeport $2.25 Lower Fairfield County: $2.25
New Haven/Meriden $2.17 Greater Hartford $2.16
