OUCH. That's really all I can think of when I see gasoline prices in the Midwest. We've sent warnings to motorists via Facebook, alerted you via e-mail, and prices continue to rise.

Minnesota and the Twin Cities both hit all time record highs today. Pump prices have never been higher in these two areas. More bad news for motorists: several states may soon join Minnesota in breaking records last set in 2008.

At risk for possible record high gasoline prices in the next week or two: Iowa, Kansas, parts of Missouri, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and South Dakota. Already shattering records in Minnesota, motorists are in lines dozens of cars deep, compounding the problems that brought the high prices: tight supply.

So...

False flag, just check the eia numbers, the input numbers are dead balls on, this guy is full of it, input, output and reserve numbers are right on the money, I checked all the way from 1990 to present day, there are no discrepancies. I check in with the commodity exchanges and spot delivery market every day.As of may 29th price was 2.79 US dollar per gallon, 3weeks ago we had 82 year crude reserve record and were producing 20 percent more domestic oil than previous year. Investigation, price rigging in europe.Government collusion with oil cartel, I could be wrong but since I get my numbers from the Fed I doubt it. Our natural resources which belong to all citizens are being stolen and then were being raped at the gas pump, what have you

We need to use our natural gas reserves to run all diesel engines. it is a fairly easy conversion to the engine. that would save one third of the oil we consume.

Hope prices come back down in the next month. I'm planning a cross-country family road trip. Gas costs will be over $1,000 in an ideal scenario. I get nervous when I see price spikes along a good portion of my anticipated route.

In three weeks, price has gone from $3.69 to $4.39. Plus, we have two refineries right here, lots of oil available and greed and gone crazy. Note that they say it is because of two refineries outside of Chicago. However, gas price in Chicago and most of Wisconsin and Iowa have not see price jumps like Minnesota. It's all a fix...a lie...GREED.

--------------

Right on TNT2EC... This same thing happened to California and the West Coast last year. Looks like a trend doesn't it? This year it's the Central Plains States. What section of the country will be nailed next year?

What a bunch of bullsh!t. These greedy f*ckers are doing nothing more than driving the prices up with no economic reason outside of their greed. Gas here in MN went from 3.39 to 4.39 in less than two weeks. A$sholes should all die.

Just increased 5 cents per litre in the Ottawa Valley, $124.9 per litre, $5.62 per gallon. The excuse will be the 4.9 earthquake we experienced this morning...
