Minneapolis at the highest. This is just the beginning.
Hey, were number two behind Hawaii! I love those DFL leaders who gave themselves a 35% raise using our money asking for a gas tax. what do you say, people? Should we move to number ONE! We can do it!!!!!!!
Well, Minneapolis wins again. With two refineries and crude next door in N. D. it's hard to blame Big Oil or other aspects of the petroleum industry. How about state regulations and taxes? Sounds like something to look into unless you like this leadership position. Is it a coincidence that California and Illinois are also right at the top of the price ladder? Check their regs and taxes; I have.
How do they figure 11 cants? 2 weeks ago I paid 3.63. It is 4.39 now.
Where is Michelle Bachman's $2.00 gas? We are producing more domestic fuel precursors now than at any time in the past 30+ years. Do you think the prices may have something to do with the record profits that Exxon et al have reported in the past year? I love that the reason we hear on the radio is that the refineries are switching over to the summer blend. What a crock of doo doo. It's a federally subsidized scam and both parties are to blame! All subsidies for oil companies should be stopped by congress immediately!
What do they mean it went up 11 cents in 2 weeks????? Here is SW Minnesota, it went up 30 cents in 2 days.
You've all heard the arguments already but the price of gas is an international issue and can't be mitigated by national production. Ride mass transit, bike, walk, carpool, move closer to work, buy a diesel, electric or hybrid, but please quit complaining about the cost of a candy bar.
This will have a measurable negative impact the regional economy. My wife and I decided not to go out to eat on Saturday evening in order to help pay for the new cost of gas. Multiply this by the ten of thousands of households that will be doing their own cut backs, and watch the multiplier effect ripple through the economy of our region.
Some of you must not be able to read. The NATIONAL average was an 11 cent increase. Yes, here in Minnesota the price has increased significantly more.

Please tell us specifically which regulation or tax has been implemented in Minnesota in the last 6 weeks that caused gas prices to increase by close to $1.00 per gallon?
