During the previous year, the price of a gallon of gasoline in the state of Minnesota was lower than $2.90.
The price of gasoline is so high in Minnesota that the owner of a gas station in that state wants his customers to know that he shares their frustration with the current situation and is just as upset about it as they are.
According to The News God, a sign that was placed in front of a Marathon gas station in St. Paul that read “We detest our gas prices too” suggested that the company shared the customers’ sentiments.
Chuck Graff, the proprietor of the company, wanted it to be clear to his customers that they were not the only ones experiencing “pain at the pump” as a direct result of the recent rise in the national average price of gasoline to more than $5 per gallon. The price of gasoline has recently increased to a point where it has surpassed this threshold.
According to the AAA motorist club, the price of gas in Minnesota has set a new high for the eleventh day in a row, and it has now surpassed $4.76, which is the highest ever recorded average price in the state. This price is now the highest that has ever been recorded.
