According to AAA, Connecticut is among the top 10 states for the largest yearly drop in gas prices.

Across the country, gas prices have been dropping but some states are faring better than others.

Connecticut ranks 7th in savings compared to one year ago.

“According to the AAA Fuel Gauge Report, the average price for a gallon of unleaded gas in CT is at $2.55, that’s $1.18 less than it was on this date last year,” a press release said.

The unofficial end of summer brought the national average of gas prices to its lowest point in more than a decade.

“The national average price for regular unleaded gasoline has fallen 22 consecutive days for a total of 28 cents per gallon, reaching today’s average of $2.39 per gallon,” the release said.

Gas prices are expected to continue to fall as driving decreases heading into the next season.

The top largest yearly decline in gas prices went to Indiana, where the average price of gas is $2.28 and is $1.28 less than it was last year.

Second on the list is Michigan where gas is $2.35, followed by Ohio, Hawaii, Kentucky, South Carolina, Connecticut, Alabama, Vermont and North Carolina coming in at number 10 with an average gas price of $2.18, $1.16 less than last year.
