Even though gas prices are falling, Connecticut is among the top 10 most expensive states for gas.

According to the AAA Fuel Gauge report, the average price for one gallon of gas nationwide is $2.03, but in Connecticut the average price for unleaded is $2.25.

Connecticut is the 10th most expensive state in the country.

“Also, the price of gas in Connecticut appears to be dropping again after creeping up a bit over the Thanksgiving holiday,” AAA said in a press release.

According to AAA, Hawaii has the most expensive gas in the country with an average of $2.79.

Hawaii is followed by California where gas averages at $2.69, and then Nevada where gas is $2.51, on average. Washington state, Alaska, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania and Washington D.C. also made the list.

Across the country, averages are down in 41 states, and Washington D.C. versus one week ago.
