The price for regular hit 3 bucks Tuesday, continuing an upward trend that began late last year.

Motorists were able to buy gas for under $2 a gallon for several months last year due to the pandemic that led to lower oil prices.

GasBuddy Minnesota is showing a statewide average price of $2.87 for a gallon of regular as of Wednesday morning. At this time a year ago, the average was $2.10 a gallon.

The last time GasBuddy reported a statewide average this high was in the fall of 2018. The last time the statewide average was $3 or higher was in the fall of 2014.
