Gas prices are falling nationally in October, and it's cheaper in Minnesota than the national average.
AAA reports gas prices are four cents cheaper than last week, yet they are 39 cents more than consumers were paying last year.
“Motorists across the country are seeing gas prices more than a dime cheaper than last week, with 41 states having less expensive state averages on the week,” said Jeanette Casselano, AAA spokesperson. “Prices are falling despite market concerns about global supply and geopolitical tensions, but that could change later this month ahead of the U.S. announcement of imposed sanctions on Iran.”
With the national average at $2.84 per gallon, Minnesota's average gas prices are averaging $2.78 per gallon.
The highest ever recorded average price was $4.27 on May 2013 for regular unleaded gas and $4.72 on July 2008 for diesel, according to AAA.
