Gas prices in the state and the region remained level this week, according to AAA Monday.
In Connecticut, the average price for a gallon of gas is $2.88, which is the same as last week. That price is down two cents since the same time last month and up 90 cents at this time last year. The national gas price is $2.87, up one cent from last week, down a penny from last month and up $1.06 at this time last year.
“Gasoline stocks have increased in the last month amid lower crude oil prices and, as a result, motorists have benefited from mostly flat gas prices,” said Amy Parmenter, spokesperson for AAA in Greater Hartford. “However, crude started to see some upward movement this week, which could translate to small increases at the pump by the end of the month.”
In the Hartford region, the average price is lower than the state and national price, at $2.84. That is the same as last week.
Locally, according to the website Gas Buddy, the prices are even lower in many cases.
