On yet another tip from a helpful reader in the Comments section of installment of "Finding Fuel," Patch went to GasBuddy and confirmed that a gallon of regular unleaded can be found for $3.75 at two stations. Our reader identifies those stations as the Limestone Service Station and BP at the intersection of Routes 35 and 7 (GasBuddy only lists them as "Valero" at 603 Danbury Road, and "Irving" at 399 Danbury Road).
The revised figures put Ridgefield nearly in line with the rest of Connecticut, where the average gallon of regular gasoline held steady at $3.74, according to AAA's "Fuel Gauge Report," with mid-grade at $3.87, premium at $3.98 and diesel at $4.13.
One year ago, a gallon of gas in Connecticut would cost, on average, $2.92, with mid-grade at $3.17, premium at $3.25 and diesel at $3.17.
