This Memorial Day weekend, gas costs less in N.D., Minnesota than last year

Going into the Memorial Day weekend, gasoline prices in Grand Forks and in other cities in North Dakota are dramatically lower than the year before, according to AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report Friday.

Regular gasoline in Grand Forks was pegged at $3.50 a gallon, down 82 cents compared to the same period a year ago. In Fargo, it was $3.37, down 78 cents, and in Bismarck $3.63, down 67 cents.

That’s in keeping with a Midwestern trend with North Dakota, Minnesota and a handful of other states seeing lower gas prices while other states see higher gasoline costs. But AAA said it’s because last year’s prices spiked around this time because of refinery problems.

The price of gas in a year ago in Grand Forks was a record high.
