Connecticut Gas Prices Tops in Continental U.S.

by Categorized: Consumer Affairs, Data, Politics Date:

As my colleague Samaia Hernandez reports, Connecticut has the highest retail gas prices in the continental United States this week, as measured by AAA, using data from the Oil Price Information Service. Connecticut’s $3.82 a gallon for regular and $4.09 for premium top every state in the nation except Alaska and Hawaii. (For Diesel, New York edges Connecticut by 2 cents a gallon.)

The sortable chart below shows average gas prices for all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Click on the name of any state to see historical prices and click here for national figures. And for gas prices in metropolitan areas of Connecticut, click here – and learn, for example, that gas in Fairfield County averages 11 cents more a gallon than the rest of the state.

    Why is this story considered “investigative”? It looks like ordinary reporting, except perhaps that it’s written in first person. Simply seeking and publishing available facts does not in my opinion qualify for the label investigative which requires at least some extra or extraordinary efforts.

      Hi Stan. While the blog carries the tagline “Investigative Reporting,” there are a couple additional areas that the The Scoop concentrates on, and one of those is data journalism. (The other is transparency and freedom-of-information issues.) You’re correct that providing this spreadsheet doesn’t qualify as investigative reporting, so I hope that explains why I posted it.

    WordPress is up and running on my host — but it completely mismatches my site’s existing theme/CSS. How hard would it be to modify/write a new theme to make it fit in? Is there an easier way to do this?.

    Our business has been mentioned on a blog in a negative way and I am not sure how I can get the anonymous blogger to remove the post.. I’ve emailed her but have had no response. What are my options and what should my next step be?.
