At least 10-20c of this over the last 6 months are the continuing devaluation of the US Dollar. Oil is priced in Dollars but the dollar increasingly buys less. You will see this at the supermarket as well. The QE practiced by the Federal Reserve is largely to blame as well as the huge US budget deficit. At least more of the fuel bill is kept in the US due to increased domestic production. Natural gas production due to advance technology has lowered natural gas prices to historic low (yep that's fracking folks!). Too bad we keep living in the green past here in New England

But then you have Route 44 Avon, Simsbury (also route 10 & 167) and Canton that add an extra ten cents on top of that because they know the people (most) in that area can't be bothered to drive an extra 5 miles (Unionville, Granby & New Hartford) to save the money. It's funny to watch route 44, at least 4 different Brands all have the EXACT same prices, Even funnier is when 1 (usually the Shell) changes it's price, buy days end ALL of them are the same again ???????
