Vermont has lowest gas prices in Northeast

Print More

Vermont has the lowest gasoline prices in the Northeast and they’re still below the national average.

“AAA” reports that the average price for a gallon of unleaded is a little more than $2.82 in Vermont today.

That compares to a national average of $2.96.

Connecticut motorists pay the most for their gas in the Northeast. The average there is more than $3.18.

Experts say a big part of the difference is that Vermont does not require ethanol in gasoline sold in the state, as a number of surrounding states do.

Ethanol is used to help make the fuel cleaner.
