Gas prices are up. The average in Minnesota is $2.61 a gallon. The Becker County average price per gallon is slightly below that at $2.55.

The average in North Dakota is now $2.67 a gallon. That's up 33-cents from the same time last year.

Triple A's Gene LaDoucer says the average price in Fargo is generally less than any market within several hundred miles. He says currently the Fargo metro area has the 8th cheapest gas prices in the nation.

Ladoucer attributes Fargo's low pump prices to a very competitive market. He says gas prices will continue to rise ahead of the busy summer driving season. He says an increase of as much as 15-cents is expected leading up to the Memorial Day weekend.
