Conn. average gas price jumps above $4
WFSB ^

Posted on 08/26/2012 2:26:49 PM PDT by matt04

he average price of a gallon of regular self-serve gasoline in Connecticut has jumped above $4 this weekend.

That's according to Saturday's survey from auto club AAA, the Oil Price Information Service and Wright Express. It shows the price rose to $4.003 overnight, from $3.999 on Friday.

The last time the average price went above $4 was May 16 of this year. The highest average of $4.39 per gallon was recorded on July 9, 2008.

Connecticut motorists are now paying more than they were a year ago, when the statewide average price for gasoline was $3.91. Problems with refineries and pipelines elsewhere in the country helped push gasoline prices higher over the last several weeks.

1/10 of 1% is “jumping”?

I assume the big blowup in Venezuela has some effect on US prices, and the hurricane will be another factor. If they waiver out ethanol, then there will be another significant reduction in supply.

Then, they get the government they deserve. Can't feel sorry for them. I feel sorry for me, though.

GOOD..... Screw Connecticut. They are one of the bluest of Blue States. I hope to hell they’re paying $6.50 per gallon by Election Day.

Too bad that all the 0 bummer voters have to pay higher prices for fuel, food, etc. Oh wait, they get the EBT cards so that won’t affect them like it does me.

Yes, but the increase in vehicle gas mileage will cancel that out. It needs to be done.

Good. Any state that doesn’t contribute some energy resource for the country ought to have to pay through the nose for using resources that others supply.

Hell, I hope the whole country is paying $6.50 from now until the election if it ensures a Romney victory. Consider it a campaign contribution when you fill up at these outrageous prices.

Do the liberals there thank Obama every time the gas prices go up? They all want $8 gallon gas.

I would agree but I’d just phrase it “if it ensures an Obama defeat”. Same thing but it’s more accurate for me personally.

I just love getting Barack-ed at the pump. If gas was $4 a gallon and the republicans were in charge, the pressitutes would be out for blood. But, as always, their jackass friends get a pass.

Problems with refineries and pipelines elsewhere in the country helped push gasoline prices higher over the last several weeks.

The refineries and oil rigs in the path of the Isaac are shutting down, people evacuation from areas in Isaac's path are producing a surge in gas demand, and gas stations are raising prices because they have no idea if they will be getting adequate resupply, and at what price.

Keep in mind that when Katrina hit, Colonial Pipeline, which supplies much of the gasoline to the East Coast and runs along the threatened Gulf coast, was shut down for days.
