Gas prices falling in Minnesota

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- Gas prices in Minnesota have eased a bit as increased supplies have caused prices to drop after hitting an all-time high last week.

The travel group AAA says the average gas price peaked at $4.28 a gallon last week statewide, but dropped to $4.05 Monday. That's still well above the national average.

AAA Minnesota-Iowa spokeswoman Gail Weinholzer says the state should soon be in line with the rest of the nation. Midwest refineries that were closed for maintenance are resuming operations and fuel is arriving from other parts of the country.
