COVID-19 is having a significant impact on gas prices…

“For the first time in 4 years, the national gas price average has dropped below $2 per gallon.”

Triple-A Minnesota spokeswoman Meredith Terpstra says today’s national gas price average is $1.99. Here in Minnesota, the average is $1.84 with motorists able to find gas for less than $2 a gallon at 98 percent of gas stations. Triple-A forecasts that until crude oil prices and gasoline demand increase, cheaper gas prices are here for the foreseeable future.
