Whoa, when did that happen?
While we were enjoying the beautiful October weather, the price of gas crept up an average of 9.5 cents a gallon last week in Minnesota, according to MinnesotaGasPrices.com.
The state average on Monday was $2.90 per gallon for regular. That makes us average, because thatâ€™s what gas is going for at many gas stations in Duluth.
Cheapest gas â€” $2.72 per gallon — was found at a Maple Grove Costco while the most expensive â€”$3.19 per gallon â€” was found at a Mobil station in St. Paul, the gasoline price tracking website found.
For more to grumble about, consider this: Gas prices went up more in Minnesota last week than they did nationwide; weâ€™re paying more than the $2.81 per gallon national average; and a year ago, we were paying 47 cents less per gallon.
