Connecticut already pays one of the highest gas taxes in the country, at about 62.2 cents per gallon, which is 10 cents higher than the national average and 12 cents higher than the Northeast regional average.

Between the federal and state gas taxes, Connecticut drivers already pay enough, and raising the gas tax will only exacerbate this cost.
