St. Cloud State Economist and Dean, School of Public Affairs King Banaian was my guest today on WJON.  He says gas prices may go up this spring but doesn't see $3 a gallon gas anytime soon.  King also discusses minimum wage, business expansion in the St. Cloud area, the effect of East African immigrants/refugees on the local economy and what a new soccer team might mean for the State.  Listen below.

Banaian joins me on a monthly basis on WJON for updates on the local, state and national economy.
