6-14-12 -- Gas prices are headed in the wrong direction for drivers in Minnesota. After no increases over Memorial Day weekend, gasoline shot up by 20 to 30 cents a gallon at some stations this week. Jim Feneis (FEN'-ice) of First Fuel Banks in Saint Cloud says this recent spike is due to serious refinery outages in the U-S. He says this is the only increase since November that is "explainable and accountable." The statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded is 3-57 - but it's selling for 3-70 to 3-90 at locations in the Twin Cities and northeastern Minnesota.
