After a seven-cents-a-gallon decline during the second half of September, gasoline prices in Connecticut have again started to climb, AAA reported. Statewide, the average price for a gallon of regular Monday was $4.12 - the third most expensive in the nation, behind California ($4.17) and Hawaii ($4.42).
In the Norwich-New London area, the average price Monday was $4.06, up from $3.99 on Sept. 1.
Consumers may experience price increases over the next couple of weeks because of record-low gasoline inventories, AAA said.
