After Twin Cities gas prices peaked at more than $4 per gallon a few years ago, there was some relief that followed with prices falling below $3 for a short period of time.
Unfortunately, as many may have found when they filled up in the metro area today, prices have made it over the $4 mark once again. (Good thing my credit card no longer has an at-the-pump-limit.)
Thankfully, many Richfield area gas stations are still hovering in the $3.80 to $3.90 range, however, how long it will last is quite unpredictable. Some may be changing even as we speak.
Currently, the best price in town can be found at the station at 6744 Penn Ave. S. According to Richfield Patch's Commute page, which tracks traffic and local gas prices, the Penn Avenue station is at $3.80 per gallon as of 2 p.m. Wednesday. The next best is at , 826 W. 66th St., at $3.88 a gallon. at 7500 Lyndale Ave. S. was at $3.99 at 3:30 p.m. In Edina, the best deal according to Edina Patch's Commuter page is $3.90 per gallon at Anderson's on 79th and France. Gas is at $4 at the BP at 3901 W. 70th St.
