HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

The national average for a gallon of regular gasoline is expected to drop under the $2 for the first time since 2009, according to AAA.

This week, it's currently at $2.01 with three states below $2.

That hasn't done much for Connecticut's average.

AAA's Fuel Gauge Report has the state ranked as the 10th most expensive state for gas.

As of Friday, the state's average price is $2.22.

It's still 55 cents under Alaska where the price is $2.77 per gallon.

The least expensive gas can be found in South Carolina, where the average is $1.80.
