Winter could bring lower gas prices

ALBERT LEA, Minn. — Falling temperatures are bringing falling prices at the gas pump.

To get ready for the winter season, more and more oil refineries will begin producing winter blend gasoline.

The blend doesn’t really impact your car’s performance during the winter months.

However, it allows companies to use different chemicals that make it easier and cheaper to produce gasoline.

“In the winter time they can actually use a chemical called butane,” Sanderson Auto Owner Mark Sanderson said. “They can use it to help maintain the volatility of that fuel, without the higher expense.”

He adds with it being cheaper to produce, which will help you at the pump by bringing down those pesky gas prices.
