Gas prices soar this springPublished 11:00am Monday, May 20, 2013
As the temperature starts to rise this week, so have the numbers drivers pay at the pump.
On Friday morning, the Holiday station in Fergus Falls sold regular unleaded gasoline at $3.99 a gallon. By the afternoon, the cost had spiked 20 cents to $4.19. That price was constant around town, except for a few places, like the Sunmart Express, that were at $4.15.
According to the USA Today, gas prices in the Midwest have jumped because of a drop in production at regional refineries.
Regular, unleaded gas averaged $4.15 across the state on Friday, which is an all-time state record. With the jump, Minnesota overtook California as the state with the highest prices in the country.
