As we get closer to summer, more and more motorists will be heading out for road trips in Minnesota and beyond.

While road-tripping is cheaper than flying, gas prices are certainly a concern, especially since they currently remain high in Minnesota and other parts of the country.

According to AAA, the national average for a gallon of regular gas as of May 29 is $3.575. The Minnesota average thankfully falls below that at the current price of $3.315. Of course, prices go up if you need other types of gas like Premium, Diesel, etc.

You may be wondering, if Minnesota's average is $3.315, then that would mean there are parts of the state where the price is higher and, of course, places where gas is even cheaper. Knowing where those places are can help you save money on your travels.
