GasBuddy update


Mon, Dec 1st, 2014
Posted in All State of Minnesota

November 24, 2014- Average retail gasoline prices in Minnesota have fallen 7.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $2.72/g yesterday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,856 gas outlets in Minnesota. This compares with the national average that has fallen 4.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $2.82/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Minnesota during the past week, prices yesterday were 33.6 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 33.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 24.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 41.4 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

“As we begin Thanksgiving week, Americans are gearing up to hit the road, and when they do, they’ll be spending far less on their fuel bill than a year ago,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy. “For nearly a third of our users we’ve heard that they will be driving over 500 miles round trip to their Thanksgiving destinations, so savings versus last year will be substantial. For those motorists, and others who cross state lines this Thanksgiving, we want to remind them that gasoline taxes vary significantly from state to state. For example- crossing the IL/MO state line yields almost a 30c/gal savings. Timing fill ups before crossing state lines or after can yield easy savings, and that’s why using the free GasBuddy smartphone app for your travels is a no-brainer. Either way, nationally, prices are likely nearing a bottom, so in addition to everything else, motorists should be thankful for the decline in gas prices,” he noted.
