Senate Majority Leader Duff Cautions Drivers to Be Vigilant this Holiday Weekend

Norwalk, CT—Senate Majority Leader Bob Duff (D-Norwalk) today issued a warning to Connecticut drivers about the dangers of scammers attempting to take advantage of the emergency in Texas and disruptions in gasoline production. “With many drivers filling up their gas tanks before hitting the road for the Labor Day holiday weekend, consumers should be vigilant,” said Senator Duff. “Be wary if you see any dramatic increases in the price of gas.”

AAA estimated that 35 million drivers will travel this weekend. As of Friday morning, the current average price in Connecticut is $2.60.

“This is a warning to retailers, distributors and suppliers, we’re watching. Don’t take advantage of the situation,” Senator Duff continued. “I am calling on the Department of Consumer Protection to keep a close eye out for unscrupulous behavior. We’re all in this together and no one should be gouged at the pump.”
