Plymouth, MN 4.39 gas, 3.82 diesel - use gas buddy!!!!
Also heard 2 refineries went offline in Chicago area recently. Gas should be lower as USA has huge refining capacity compared to other countries. The trucks and the trains are hauling tanks of crude out of SD all the time. I am convinced that crude oil is being sold overseas instead of taking care of the homeland. It is more profitable to sell it overseas is the only reason.
If it is going overseas, and I'm sure it is, it's because we don't have enough refining capacity. The last major refinery was built in the 70s and we didn't have the various gas blends by season and state. It was just leaded, unleaded and premium. Thank your neighborhood tree hugger.
