Gas Prices in Hartford Area Slip Following Jump After Hurricane Harvey

Hawaii, HI, September 25- Average retail gasoline prices in Hawaii have fallen 2.0 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.36/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 355 gas outlets in Hawaii.

In Jacksonville, the average fell 4 cents to $2.64 on Monday, according to AAA.

AAA, which also tracks gas prices, said MI had the second biggest drop in weekly average daily gas price, with a 12-cent decline.

Hurricane Harvey shut down refineries and fuel shipping routes for a few days.

He said that the reason gas prices haven't come back down to pre-Harvey levels is complex.

Michigan's lowest average price was about $2.32 per gallon in the Saginaw, Bay City and Midland areas.

"The continued decline at gas pumps will bring the national average down another 5-10 cents in the week ahead". However, compared to this time previous year, Florida drivers are paying 52 cents more for a gallon of gasoline.

The average price of gas in Florida is $2.67 and Jenkins says it could drop by as much as 10 cents in the upcoming week. But Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy, said gas prices this fall should continue to decline as refineries replenish inventories and deliveries get back to normal across the Southeast.

States with the highest average gas prices: California, $3.12; Hawaii, $3.06; Alaska, $3.04; Washington, $3; Nevada, $2.92; OR, $2.86; CT, $2.84; Pennsylvania, $2.81; NY, $2.76, and Idaho, $2.74.

But, by Thanksgiving, DeHaan predicted: "We'll see prices bouncing around in the low $2's".
