Connecticut Republicans are currently raging in the state, demanding that diesel prices be reduced to help the 1% of Connecticut motorists who likely drive a diesel-powered car. The diesel tax, which was recently at its lowest rate since 2011, increased slightly on July 1 to a rate still lower than that of 2015.
