Editorial: Lower gas price is small relief
Soaring high ... but not too high: Gasoline prices are holding steady locally at just more than $3 a gallon. Red Wing saw $2.90 a week ago.
The relief came as temperatures plummeted and Christmas shopping peaked. People found they had a few extra dollars in their pockets.
The U.S. average price of gasoline fell 20 cents per gallon over the last 30 days. Today, that average hovers around $3.22 per gallon.
