NORWALK - State officials say a gas station in Norwalk will pay a fine to settle charges of price gouging in the days after Sandy.

They say the Shell on Connecticut Avenue raised prices by 10 cents a gallon on Nov. 1, even though its wholesale price did not go up.

Officials say the station agreed to pay $1,500.

That is about three times more than the extra profit it made by raising prices.
