Deep Dive: Gas prices up 30% compared to last year, commuting down in many counties

Gas prices in Connecticut are about 30% higher than they were a year ago, and they will probably rise more as we head into the spring and summer months, analysts warn.
Connecticut gas prices are around $3.54 per gallon, which is near the national average.
The increase in gas prices has caused people in some counties to stop commuting or to commute less. In Litchfield County, commuting is down by 6.4%, New Haven is down 13.4%, Hartford is down 13.6% and Fairfield is down 16.6%.
