Connecticut residents are feeling the pain at the pump, AGAIN. According to News 12, "a gallon of regular gas jumped 20 cents from last week." AAA says the national average is now $3.66 but Connecticut's average is $3.71.

AAA Spokesperson Andrew Gross says:

"The situation overseas with war in both the Middle East and Ukraine has the oil market on edge. But this is also the time of year we may see a bit of a lull in gasoline demand between the end of spring breaks and ahead of Memorial Day. So the national average for gas may waffle a bit with small increases, some flat days, and even some price dips."

This means we could all use some belt-tightening, and we need to know where the cheapest gallons can be found in the Nutmeg State. Here is some of what I found with the help of Gas Budy.

The cheapest gallon of gas appears to be in Southington, CT at the Cumberland Farms on 909 Queen street. The cost for a regular gallon of gas there is currently $3.29 as of (4/23/24).
