It's one think to suspect you're being screwed and another to know for sure. Now we can be certain that something unfair is going on here. According to Wallet Hub, Connecticut is the 4th Most Energy Expensive States in the U.S. Wallet Hub did a study on the matter and came up with this Top 10 list:

1. Wyoming

2. North Dakota

3. Alaska

4. Connecticut

5. Massachusetts

6. Oklahoma

7. Vermont

8. Iowa

9. New Hampshire

10. Indiana

Their study "used a special formula that accounts for the following residential energy types: electricity, natural gas, motor fuel and home heating oil." When the numbers were finished crunching, they determined that Connecticut residents are spending a total of $593 a month.

That total number includes monthly electricity ($171), monthly natural gas ($132), monthly motor fuel ($129) and monthly home heating oil ($161). It should come as no surprise to you that we ranked  #2 in the nation for electricity costs. The most energy expensive state in the nation was Wyoming with a total energy cost of $845. The least expensive energy state was New Mexico at $373.

Wildlife Expert Shares Connecticut's Top 5 Most Dangerous Animals

To come up with the 5 Most Dangerous animals in Connecticut I consulted with an expert. Her name is Jen "The Zookeeper" Kotkin and she immediately took issue with the phrasing "the most dangerous." I mean she knew what I was angling for but made clear to me that these animals are only dangerous when approached, protecting their cubs and food, etc. She told me: "wild animals aren’t out there looking to start fights, and take the flight versus fight route whenever possible." 

Without further adieu...Cue the scary music....These are CT's 5 Most Dangerous Animals
