UNDATED (WJON News) -- After a sharp rise in gas prices over the last few weeks, there was a decline last week.

Gas Buddy says average gasoline prices in Minnesota have fallen 5.2 cents, averaging $3.74.

The national average has declined 5.4 cents, averaging $3.86.

The national decline is due to refinery issues being solved on the west coast.  In addition, oil prices have cooled off slightly after OPEC's decision to cut production.
