Skip to comments.Minnesota gas prices bust through $4 level
Posted on 05/15/2013 7:43:39 PM PDT by Sopater
The price of a gallon of gasoline hit a shocking level overnight. In the Twin Cities, several chain gas stations -- mostly in the outer ring -- raised their prices to between $4.09 and $4.19 a gallon. That's about 20 cents more overnight, 60 cents in the last two weeks, and $1.20 since January. At many stations, prices rose into the $4 range yesterday afternoon, then fell overnight into the $3.90 area.
What's going on here?

We’ve been paying that and more here in California for over a year.
Demand is low and supplies are high. Price gouging. Now here come the free market Nazis to tell me how wrong I am.
$3.16 in middle TN.
Price gouging of all of the homos that will be coming there to get “married”.
It wasn’t overnight. It went up 25 cents per gallon on my lunch hour today.
This is part of what happens when Environazis don’t allow construction of a new refinery in the United States for forty years.
I drove by a gas station this afternoon and though “My god it’s over 4$( 4.05)”. Half hour later I drove by the same station ( $4.25)
I went to get gas at Sam’s Club and the cars were lined up. It was $3.999/gal across the street at both stations, SuperAmerica and Kwik Trip, but Sam’s was $3.819.
“What’s going on here?”
Conservatives are conspiring against liberal sh*thole states and making them suffer. Patriots pay less for gas than fascists. Deal with it.
Minnesota liberals must be rejoicing as gas prices are going up to European levels, Governor Dayton and the DFL Legislature are raising taxes and gay marriage is now legalized. Surely this will create a socialist utopia.
I just paid $4.05/gal for premium in Des Moines, Iowa.
Find the cheapest gasoline prices in your area. Don’t know what is driving the prices up in MN.
Be careful what you ask for as you may get exactly what you asked for!!!!!! You wanted communism, you got communism.
Beat me to it.
And they’ll have parades every day to celebrate!
I use GasBuddy. The cheapest gas here is within one bit of $4.
My guess: Environmental regs passed by the usual suspects forcing refineries to change their “blends” for the summer season producing a temporary shortage.
Summer blends must be coming out. You always pay more when they switch blends. Where i live they mandate ethanol garbage and emissions testing so we always pay more when they switch.
man: “My Wife asked me to get her somethign really expensive for her birthday this year- So I went out and bought her a gallon of gasoline”
$3.22 in Pearland, TX - Houston suburb to the south. Significantly more in the city.
Guy was just on a local Twin Cities stations said two refineries in Oklahoma are down for maintenance.
