Excuse me, WHAT am I seeing right now?  My eyes are old and I have no idea where I left my readers, but I'm pretty sure I'm seeing gas under $3 at a gas station in Minnesota.

Minnesota Gas Station Just Dropped The Price of Gasoline to $2.99!

The last two weeks, I've put a few thousand miles on my car thanks to a few road trips and so I am keenly aware of how much gasoline is right now.  I've filled my tank up in 7 different states including in Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Iowa and the lowest I saw over the last two weeks was $3.18 in Nashville, Tennessee.  I actually asked the cashier if the price was right because I didn't believe it was true...and then I got a very weird look like I was from another planet.  Now I'm wondering in my Minnesota "O" was a bit too strong in that conversation.

I know that Rochester's price of gas was not under $3.00 today, because I just filled up the tank at Kwik Trip on South Broadway.  But maybe, just maybe, it will come down now that the Vermillion Pump & Market dropped theirs to $2.99.  

I'm guessing that quite a few people will be driving a few extra miles just to fill up at Vermillion Pump & Market.  And to help you out, if you need directions, you can find them for Vermillion Pump & Market here.

What's the lowest price you remember seeing at the gas station?

Way back in my college days, I remember filling up my car for 99 cents a gallon.  And that was the last time I remember it ever being that low.  What about you?  Let me know what price you remember seeing over on my Facebook page - Jessica On The Radio.  And if you need a hint at what the prices were, look below to find the year you started driving and see how much gas cost then.

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
