Gas prices have risen slightly in the past week, according to the price tracking website Connecticut Gas Prices. The state average is now $3.63 per gallon, compared to $3.61 a week ago.
"While I don't necessarily believe that the recent uptick in crude prices will stick, I also don't see prices falling considerably lower until after the conclusion of the summer driving season, when demand declines, and more expensive blends are phased out," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com senior petroleum analyst, in a statement.
The national average is $3.41 per gallon.
According to the Shelton Patch Commute section, the cheapest gas in town is still at The Food Bag #550 on 442 River Rd, closely followed by Cumberland Farms at 819 River Rd.
