Gas prices in the Dakotas are set to reach all-time highs. South Dakota’s record average price for a gallon of regular gas is $4.09 per gallon. That was set in July of 2008. The average price in the state on Friday was $3.89. In North Dakota, the record of $4.08 per gallon is likely to be broken in the next couple of days. Average price there is $3.98 per gallon. Accidents at Midwest oil refineries and the planned temporary closures of two large refineries in Chicago are cited as the reasons for the gas price increases.
