Fuel Report: Lowest Gas Price Around $3.81

We're all feeling it: Unrest in the Middle East can yield higher gas prices. Let's help each other find the least expensive stations around.

In Connecticut, the average gallon of regular gasoline costs $3.74, according to AAA's "Fuel Gauge Report," with the mid-grade at $3.85, premium at $3.97 and diesel at $4.11.

Things are bad, but could be worse: The highest-ever recorded price for a gallon of regular unleaded in the Nutmeg State was $4.39 — on July 9, 2008.

Still, the current figures mark a rise over last week and last month, with the week-ago prices for the same fuel at $3.65, $3.76, $3.87 and $4.02 — and the month-ago prices at $3.34, $3.45, $3.57 and $3.71.

Amazingly, one year ago, a gallon of gas in Connecticut would cost, on average, $2.91, with mid-grade at $3.16, premium at $3.24 and diesel at $3.16.

Simple...don't buy gas in Ridgefield if you can avoid it. If I'm down in Wilton, the Citgo station on Rte 7, had regular (Saturday,03/12) at $3.75/gal for regular. Cheaper in the Danbury/Brookfield area too. Ahhhh, gotta love special "Ridgefield Pricing"!

I paid $3.75 yesterday at the Limestone Service Station in Ridgefield, in addition, the gas station on the corner of 35 & 7 also was charging $3.75, this station is also in Ridgefield.
