Gas Prices Fall for First Time in Weeks
UNDATED -- Gas prices have started to slowly fall.
Gas Buddy says average gasoline prices in Minnesota have fallen 1.6 cents per gallon in the last week. We're now averaging $4.73.
The national average price for gas has fallen 4.2 cents per gallon in the last week, averaging $4.97.
Gas Buddy says for the first time in nine weeks gas prices have fallen following a broad sell-off in oil markets, pushing the national average back under the $5 level.
They say we could see the national average fall another 15 to 30 cents, if we're lucky, by the 4th of July, barring any unexpected shutdowns at a time when the market is extremely sensitive.
