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.
