ST. CLOUD -- A new year brings a new outlook on many things, including gas prices in the St. Cloud area.

Gas prices have dropped below $2.00 per gallon at select stations, following the trend drivers in the Twin Cities were seeing just a week ago.

Just this (Wednesday) afternoon, Cenex in Sartell (pictured above) and other stations dropped their unleaded regular price to $1.99.9.

Prices are dropping to levels not seen in five years.

It was just a few weeks ago gas prices were over $3.00 per gallon.
