Just days before Nov. 6 election, gasoline prices tumble
Just days before a national election, crude oil prices and gasoline prices took a severe tumble from near-record highs. What gives?
One need not ask why, only why not. Demand is down. The U.S. is producing more crude.
Prices on a recent Twin Cities weekend swing were at $3.669 on Friday in the Brainerd lakes area. Driving through Royalton, the price had already dropped to $3.499. A few miles further, and the price was at $3.399.
