Gas prices dip faster in MN than nation
Average retail gasoline prices in Minnesota have fallen 3.9 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.19/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,856 gas outlets in Minnesota.
This compares with the national average that has fallen 0.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.29/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.
Including the change in gas prices in Minnesota during the past week, prices Sunday were 23.4 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 23.9 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 6.8 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.4 cents per gallon higher than this day a year ago.
“As expected, the deep freeze during the last week impacted more than just the air temperature, but also kept a grip on gasoline prices,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
