MN gas prices remain lower than last year
Average retail gasoline prices in Minnesota have risen 0.6 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.50/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,856 gas outlets in Minnesota.
This compares with the national average that has increased 1.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.64/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.
Including the change in gas prices in Minnesota during the past week, prices Sunday were 33.4 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 0.9 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
“It’s been another relatively quiet week across most of the country with the national average fluctuating little,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
“Having said that, some hot spots have emerged- specifically areas of the Great Lakes where prices last week shot within just a tenth of a penny of four dollars per gallon.”
