    MN #1 in high gas prices

    Midwest breaks all time record high gas prices

    Minneapolis saw another jump over night and into today to $4.39 a gallon, beating out consistently high Honolulu by a dime!

    That's more than $0.70/gal than the nation average ($3.67/gal) & that average includes all 50 states.

    $1.399 per litre 30 minutes north of the border. Translates to $5.29 per gallon. $5.23 USD when adjusted for exchange.

    I struggle to sympathize for you people (What do you mean you people?)

    How come all of these gas stations always have the same price? Oh yes, they use the same processing plants. How is that a market? Adam Smith would state it is not.

    By the way, if one thinks gas is expensive now, one will have a hard pill to swallow in the future. Peak oil has already passed us, and demand will increase with the population. Unless we find alternatives, we are going to see prices that make these the good old days.

    The fact that we are using alternative oil sources and are allowing the potential environmental disaster that is fracking are indicators of how desperate the situation has become.

    They don't have all the same prices. When some of the gas stations hit $4.39 a week ago in Minneapolis, others in Minneapolis ranged from $4.39 to $4.21 & it was $3.99 in WI just over the river that same day.

    It is $3.99 in Winona, MN as of 8 hours ago which is higher than all of these.

    It is no wonder I fill up when I am about half a tank rather than all the way. Saves money!
