Earlier this week reports surfaced of gas averaging below $2 a gallon at places around the country such as Amarillo, Texas. 

Twin Cities' prices aren't averaging below $2 but a few stations around the Twin Cities were selling gas at prices from $1.96 to $1.99 per gallon on Wednesday, according to Gas Buddy.

Costco in St. Louis Park is at $1.96 and Sam's Club in St. Louis Park and BP in Minneapolis at 35th and Lyndale are at $1.99. 

In places around the Twin Cities where gasoline is often cheapest, Burnsville and Fridley, for example, prices were still above $2 per gallon, according to Gas Buddy. The national average for a gallon of gas is $2.28.

"Another week, another nearly country-wide decline in average gasoline prices as crude oil prices struggle near the lowest levels of the year," said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy. A barrel of crude oil closed at $43.23 yesterday. 

Don't expect prices to go much lower, DeHaan said. Hurricane season is about to start, threatening refinery supplies.
