ST. CLOUD -- The best bus operators from around Minnesota gathered in St. Cloud this weekend.

The Minnesota Public Transit Association held their 33rd annual Minnesota State Bus Roadeo Saturday. The event was hosted locally by St. Cloud Metro Bus and held in the K Lot outside the Herb Brooks National Hockey Center on the campus of St. Cloud State University.

Drivers in both the large and small bus competitions navigated an obstacle course that tested their ability to maneuver through cones simulating lanes, turns, and parking situations all while being timed.

Drivers were also required to complete a wheelchair securement test and training session.

The winners will be announced at a banquet at Kelly Inn Saturday night. The best and brightest will advance to the American Public Transportation Association’s annual International Bus Roadeo.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.
