On Monday, Connecticut's average price for a gallon of gas in Connecticut was $3.40/g. Seeing as the price is ridiculous, it is time to do some value shopping for the Danbury readers. According to a Wednesday (3/27/24) Gas Buddy report, the cheapest gallon of gas in Danbury is at the Citgo at 64 Newtown Road where the price is $3.29.

Here are the Top 4 Cheapest gallons of gas in the Hat City

  • Citgo - 64 Newtown Road - 3.29
  • Citgo - 90 West Street - 3.31
  • Gulf - 300 White Street - 3.31
  • Road Runners - 282 White Street - 3.31

The most expensive in Danbury, Connecticut is the Mobil at 40 Backus Avenue where gas is $3.99/g.

Not far away from Danbury, you can find some of the cheapest gas in the state. The New Milford Mercury at 222 Danbury Road was listed on Gas Buddy for $3.10 on Wednesday. The Valero at 315 Danbury Road in New Milford was also inexpensive at $3.11/g. In Brookfield, you can find the cheapest gas at the 177 Federal Road Citgo for $3.12.

It's hard to believe we live in a time where gas over $3 is the cheapest you can find but this is our reality. I really need to pass right by Mobil every chance I get because they are always the most expensive stations but I love having the pumps all to myself. If I have to play Tetris just to get my car lined up with the pump, I'm out of there and on to the next place.

There is a song by Tesla and the lyrics go something like this:

Danbury, CT has it's fair share of signs, these are just a bit more interesting than your average public message.
