Minnesotans face the 'insanity' of gas at nearly $5 per gallon
July 1, 2022
HINCKLEY, Minn. - Doug Holman pulled up to the pumps at Tobies and spent $260 to fill up his Ford pickup and the speedboat he was hauling to Lutsen, Minn., for his family's annual July 4th getaway.
"In total, this trip is going to cost me more than $1,000 for gas," Holman said. On the same trip a year ago, he paid $450.
This won't be the last time Holman takes out the boat in 2022, but the Edina construction company owner said he won't be going out every week like he did last year. Gas, now priced at nearly $5 per gallon, is too expensive.
