Gas Prices in the Twin Cities

You probably didn’t need to be told, but gas prices are lowering throughout the country:

The average U.S. retail price for gasoline is closing in on $2 a gallon after falling another 15 cents over the last week to the lowest level since March 2005, the U.S. Energy Department said on Monday.

The national price for regular unleaded gasoline fell for the ninth week in a row, sinking to $2.07 a gallon, down $1.03 from a year ago, the department’s Energy Information Administration said in its weekly survey of service stations.

Minnesota happens to be one of seventeen states whose gas prices average under $2/gallon. The Midwest also had the lowest regional price at $1.94/gallon, and much of the Twin Cities seems to have gas going for less.

What are the cheapest prices you’ve seen lately? I’ve spotted $1.79/gallon a few blocks away at Jim’s Chicago Service on 54th & Chicago Ave S.
