Wide range of gas prices don't add up for CT drivers
Ever wonder why gas prices across southwestern Connecticut vary so much? Well, experts say zone pricing is to blame for how much you're paying at the pump.
Experts say zone pricing is the reason why a gallon of regular gas can cost $2.49 at one station, but just a few miles down the road it could be 16 to 26 cents cheaper. Although the Federal Energy Information Administration says the price of gas is down since the start of August, what remains constant is the variation in pricing.
According to one expert, unless a new energy policy banning zone pricing is passed by the state, drivers will continue to pay variable prices.
