Gas prices in Connecticut remain well above $4, but dropped three cents to $4.07 in the past week according to ConnecticutGasPrices.com.
The national average is down to $3.77, partly due to a decline in the record prices recently seen in California.
“The national average has again seen a decrease in the last week, as California joins much of the rest of the United States in seeing lower prices,” said Patrick DeHaan, analyst at parent company of ConnecticutGasPrices.com, GasBuddy.com.
DeHaan predicts prices will continue to decline.
“In the week ahead, we could continue to see declines as wholesale prices fell lower late last week, meaning gas stations have additional room to drop their prices,” he said.
