ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) Gas prices have fallen below three-dollars a gallon at many stations in central and southern Minnesota.
Triple-A Minnesota's Gail Weinholzer says there are several reasons for the relief at the pump: The switchover from summer- to winter-grade fuel -- plus demand is less in winter and crude oil prices have stabilized.
Weinholzer says the state is now more than 15-cents below the national average.
Minnesota gas prices were above the national average last summer mainly due to pipeline problems in the Midwest.
