Gas prices slip below $1 a gallon at some Minnesota gas stations


David Joles – Star Tribune

A Southwest Airlines jet comes in for a landing at MSP near the Speedway on Post Road where gas and oil prices were already below $2 a gallon last week.

This is not a cruel April Fools' Day joke. A gallon of gas on Wednesday morning was going for less than $1 at a few Minnesota gas stations, and prices at some stations in the metro had dropped to $1.06.

Analysts say the lowest gas prices in nearly two decades have been brought on as the demand for oil has dropped precipitously as lockdowns such as Minnesota's "Stay at Home" directive to combat the coronavirus pandemic has kept drivers off the roads.
