MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s been a nice holiday present to have gas prices dip below $3 a gallon, but what will happen in the new year?
The average price in the Twin Cities is currently around $3.02 a gallon and Gail Weinholzer of the AAA doesn’t think it’s going to change much anytime soon.
“I think it’ll continue into January,” said Weinholzer.
That’s because the slow economic recovery is keeping consumer demand fairly stable and the oil-producing Mideast is relatively stable, as well.
“So the next significant increase we might see would be in late February when we start the switchover from the winter back to the summer grade fuels,” she added.
Some Twin Cities stations are selling gas for as low as $2.90 a gallon.
