The truth behind Connecticut’s gas prices
Ever wonder why Connecticut’s gasoline prices are so high?
Today, about 47 cents of every gallon you buy goes straight to the state of Connecticut.
On July 1, 2013, gas prices will jump nearly 4 cents overnight — a record amount — thanks to a state tax very few people know about — the wholesale tax. Right now that tax costs drivers an extra 22 cents a gallon. In July, it’ll go up to around 26 cents a gallon.
