UNDATED -- If you were planning on filling-up on gas on your way home from work, be prepared to pay a lot more than you would have this (Thursday) morning.

Some St. Cloud metro area gas stations are now charging as much as $3.04 a gallon. That's about a .20 cent jump from earlier today.

And, according to the website "Minnesota Gas Prices.com", it's also the first time we've been over $3 a gallon since the start of the recession back in September 2008.
