The average price for a gallon of gas in Connecticut hasn’t moved much over the past month, as supply has been growing along with demand, according to AAA.

The average price in the state is $3.09, which is the same as one week ago, three cents higher than one month ago and $1.01 more than this time last year.

According to AAA, in its latest weekly report, new data from the Energy Information Administration (EIA) showed growth in gasoline demand and total domestic gasoline stocks. The increase in total supply, even as gas demand increased, has helped to limit pump price fluctuations this week. However, rising crude oil prices could mean higher prices later this month.

The national average is $3.07, which is the same as last week, three cents more than one month ago and 96 cents higher than this time last year.

In the Hartford region, the average price is $3.06.
