Gasoline prices in Fergus Falls jumped to nearly $4 per gallon on Tuesday.
Local convenience stores, including Casey’s, Take 5, Big Chief, M&H and Stop-N-Go, had the price this morning at $3.99.9 per gallon, an increase of 15 cents compared to the previous day. Olson Oil still had its price at $3.85.9 per gallon as of this morning.

“Who knows?” said Bill Ring, owner of Pebble Lake Take 5 in Fergus Falls. “Your guess is as good as mine.”
Ring pointed out that it’s the first time he’s seen the gas price increase during an election year.
