The average price for a gallon of gas in Minnesota is about $2.06 a gallon, a five-year low, according to GasBuddy.com. The national average is $2.25 a gallon.
The low gas prices are a result of an increase in energy production in North America and a decline in demand for oil in developing economies like China.
