Where should I refuel?

Submission interval:

Our HR team is going on a trip to visit all our new colleagues. As they are very price conscious they would like to stop at the gas station where gas is the cheapest. As they would not like to make a detour the team is only interested in gas stations that are at most 3 kilometers away from the route that they are taking. They only have to fill up the tank once and for the purposes of this exercise we will assume that they could make the trip without refueling (if they wanted to).
