Here's what I feel is the REAL answer.
What the traffic can bear.
Fairfield county CT = one of the most wealthy counties in America.
Hence the high price at a Greenwich dealer.
Hartford CT: Hey the Whole State is atop the per captita of the population.
Boston less than Manhattan/NJ but that's why rural Cape Cod or mid-America
is going to be cheaper.............
Why is gas cheap in Springfield Mass vs the whole state?
Why is Georgia that cheapest in the nation?
Why is CA gas  $2.00 a gallon?  I can see why Hawaii gas is $2.11 a gallon.
Next to destination charges..........locality plays the role in determining 
IMHO - Scott by BOSTON
