Minnesota weekly gas price update and outlook


Mon, Sep 15th, 2014
Posted in All State of Minnesota

Average retail gasoline prices in Minnesota have not moved in the past week, averaging $3.34/g, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 2,856 gas outlets in Minnesota. This compares with the national average that has increased 1.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.44/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Minnesota during the past week, prices were 28.3 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 2.0 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has decreased 2.2 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 13.7 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago.

“The last week saw upward momentum in gas prices continue, leading the national average up about a penny,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “We’re past the seventh inning stretch for what will be a short lived upward trend, and motorists will be seeing lower prices by late September in most areas across the country. A mere 1.5 percent of all U.S. gas stations are priced over $4/gal, while roughly a third of stations are seeing prices over $3.50/gal, a huge drop vs. last year when nearly 62 percent of stations were charging over $3.50/gal. On the bottom side, the cheapest 5 percent of stations are charging an average of $3.08/gal, and that price will likely continue moving lower in the weeks ahead,” DeHaan said.
