Gas prices drop below $3 in some North Dakota cities

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Gas prices have dropped below $3 per gallon at some stations in North Dakota's largest city.

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Gas prices have dropped below $3 per gallon at some stations in North Dakota's largest city.

It is the first time prices have dropped below that mark in Fargo in more than a year.

AAA spokesman Gene LaDoucer tells The Forum newspaper that the average price of a gallon of gas in Fargo is $3.06. That's well below the U.S. and North Dakota average of $3.24 per gallon. LaDoucer says that in North Dakota, Fargo often has the cheapest gas prices, though the average in Devils Lake is $2.98 per gallon right now.

LaDoucer says prices will continue to drop but likely will bottom out after falling another nickel or dime. He expects the lower prices to remain through the end of January.
