MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Another day, another infamous No. 1 ranking as Minnesota still has the highest gas prices in the nation, according to GasBuddy.com.
The Twin Cities is averaging $4.34 per gallon, while Chicago’s averaging $4.30. Honolulu is third with $4.26.
Earlier this week Sen. Amy Klobuchar called on the Department of Energy to take action.
“This spike in gas prices is hurting families, businesses and farmers across Minnesota and disrupting commerce,” Klobuchar had said. “Scheduled maintenance at refineries should not be allowed to cause such major disruptions in supply. That’s why I have called on the Department of Energy to thoroughly review the closures and the timing of maintenance operations and take action to prevent future supply problems that cause consumers pain at the pump.”
