HARTFORD, Conn. — Gas prices continue to hit record-breaking highs and some residents say they're second-guessing their summer vacation plans.
“We’re struggling to put gas in our car.”
The highest average of gas in Connecticut is $4.59 above the national average $4.48.
“They’re (gas prices) ridiculous,” said customer Tanya Marquez.
Record-breaking prices that are keeping experts on their toes.
Tracy Noble with AAA has been working there for 21 years and said she’s never seen a situation like this before.
“No I have not,” said Noble.
With gas prices continuing to rise and summer right around the corner, people said they are thinking about vacations differently.
“We’re going to be at home mostly. I don’t think we’re going to be traveling that much,” said Marquez.
And a big question that still stands is how high will gas get?
“That’s up 21 cents in the last week and if we keep going at that rate, could we reach $5 a gallon in the next two weeks? I hate to think about it but it’s not out of the realm of possibilities,” said Noble.
