Gas prices in some parts of the country could spike after oil refineries in Texas were shut down ahead of Tropical Storm Harvey. But, AAA Minnesota spokewoman Gail Weinholzer says we may only see a small price spike here in the Midwest.
The gas-tracking website gasbuddy.com says some Midwestern states could see gas prices drop below a dollar a gallon later this year. GasBuddy reports that nine states in the nation are currently witnessing the lowest average gasoline prices since early 2004.
If you're heading out of town this week for the Thanksgiving holiday, today (Monday) is a good day to fill-up on gas. Most St. Cloud metro area gas stations are selling a gallon of regular unleaded for a $1.99.
If you would have told me a year ago that we'd be paying less than two-dollars a gallon for gas I would have said you were crazy. Yesterday, I filled up in St. Cloud for $1.90 a gallon (after a 5-cent discount). Last May we were paying more than $4.00 a gallon. That's a huge deal. Sounds like it might stay this way for a while. How low can it go?
