There are still "bargains" to be found in Richfield.
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 Richfield U.S. station at 6744 Penn Ave. S. According to Richfield Patch's Commute page, which tracks traffic and local gas prices, the …

Best gas prices around town.
Most gas prices in Richfield, and the surrounding areas, were sitting at $3.85 Friday morning. However, there are a couple better deals to be had around town. Every Friday Richfield Patch will find the best gas prices to help you budget for the weekend ahead. Editor's note: Gas prices can change several times throughout the day, therefore there may be discrepancies between what is shown here and what the price is when you stop at a station.

Construction at the Super America on 66th Street and Lake Shore Drive is finished.
Construction on the gas pumps and canopy covering the pumps at Super America, 826 W. 66th St., is complete. Workers removed the old canopy and pumps in mid-June 2011 and completely rebuilt the structure and put in brand new pumps. The replacement of the canopy and pumps came after a portion of the canopy collapsed under the weight of snow and ice on Dec. 30, 2010. The pumps opened July 1, just in time for the holiday weekend.

The reconstruction of the 66th Street and Lake Shore Drive Super America gas canopy is nearly complete.
After contractors removed Super America's, 826 W. 66th Street, broken canopy last week, the new gas pump covering has been erected in its place. A portion of the old canopy collapsed under the weight of snow and ice Dec. 30, 2010. On Monday workers were working to restore the gas pumps and Super America expects the new pumps to be in place by the end of next week, although this can change. The store itself is still open. Richfield Patch will let readers know when the pumps are functioning again.

After a portion of the station's canopy fell in December 2010, reconstruction has finally begun.
After months of being an eyesore, the broken canopy at the Super America station on 66th Street and Lake Shore Drive has been taken down and is now in the process of being reconstructed. A portion of the canopy collapsed under the weight of snow and ice Dec. 30, 2011. The entire canopy structure, and the gas pumps it covered, was removed and crews are working hard on the ground. Richfield Patch is working on getting more information about when the project is expected to be done. The store itself is still open, however gas in unavailable at this time.

The West 66th Street and Lakeshore Drive Super America location's broken canopy awaits full repairs.
The canopy covering gas pumps at the Super America location at 826 W. 66th St., which collapsed on Dec. 30, 2010 under the weight of ice and snow, is still awaiting repair. Debris was still on the property and the area was sealed off on Jan. 3, but by Jan. 6 the debris had been removed and the area was unblocked. As of Tuesday morning the canopy was still unrepaired. It is unclear when the repairs will be done or if there is any threat of further collapse, as Northern Tier Energy, which recently purchased the station and many others in Minnesota, didn't return Richfield Patch's phone calls for comment. In addition, workers and managers at the location were not allowed to comment.
