Gas prices in SW USA are down to $2.36 a gallon, these prices here are ridiculous! It’s sad to see our gas prices are controlled by people like starchy slimyskin! We need a Fyling J in Minot, were the prices are controlled by the compnay and not a monopoly.

WA you must have "slept" through English class, that's okay though as you would rather speak Spanish anyway. As for Economics, demand LOWERS prices, otherwise your laptop would be $10,000 dollars by now. Markets drive fuel and local ditributors adjust from there, which is exactly WHY we pay more than Fargo and Bismarck.

73Hockey why don't you complain to your Gov. or your Sen. Hoeven or Rep. Cramer about all your pathetic misfortunes! The Gov. gets his Federal Farm Welfare Checks he knows how to work the system! Write to him maybe he can give you a few pointers! ;-)

That is economics 101 supply dictates the price! 73Hockey you must have sleeped through economics class huh? h4c yes the market regulates the price along with that is the availability to supply enough fuel to keep up with the demand! Colder weather also plays a factor!

Sorry WA, I guess I could just vote blue, go on the "system" and not worry about fuel prices because I get housing and heating assistance, day care, food stamps, etc. Those of us that have to PAY for everything have a legitimate concern.

Maybe the supply of diesel is the problem?

Has anyone heard reports on just how much diesel is available? Wasn't there a bit of a shortage in NWND last winter? Because of the high demand, are the suppliers continuing to play catchup? I'm just asking, I don't know...

73Hockey stop whining and fill up you big diesel pickup truck! If you can afford the truck you can afford the fuel! That's the price you pay for progress in the "Magic City"! You have to do your part to!

Normal economics, demand brings prices down but in Minot, it is all greed so the theory doesn't work here.

73Hockey it is called demand! More diesel is being used in the oil patch! What does the diesel trucks and drilling rigs run on?

Exactly leftwing, now if we can fix diesel that is almost a dollar more per gallon with less refining than gas. Thank you Farstad for your gouging.
