CT drivers anticipate hike in summer gas prices
Gas prices continue to rise around Connecticut as the summer approaches, and one expert says prices could reach the $4 mark.
Peter Beutel, of the energy analysis firm Cameron Hanover, says prices are almost at the highest the market can handle but there is still room for them to go up. Beutel expects prices to peak in June.
Prices are up 25 cents across the state from a month ago and Connecticut residents are paying an average of $3.06 for a gallon of regular.
Governor M. Jodi Rell (R-CT) is calling on state senators and congressmen to pressure the U.S. energy secretary to launch an investigation into the recent spike in prices.
