PUMP PATROL: Gas prices hit new record high in Connecticut
The price of gas is hitting record highs in Connecticut, sitting at $4.60 for a gallon of regular gas.
That number is up six cents from Monday and 70 cents from a month ago, when we were under $4 a gallon.
According to AAA, the national average is continuing to set records too, with nearly every state above $4 a gallon.
AAA says the increase is primarily due to the high cost of oil, which is close to $110 a barrel. The decrease in demand between spring break and Memorial Day weekend is having no effect this year.
