MINNEAPOLIS - A Minneapolis gas station is giving its customers a good deal this Christmas.

The BP at Lyndale Ave. S. and West 36th St. started selling a gallon of regular unleaded for just $1.99.

Most other gas stations around the Twin Cities are in the $2.15 to $2.20 price range.

KARE 11 talked to customers who were surprised and grateful for the deep discount.

Numbers from gasbuddy.com show the last time we saw average gas prices below the $2.00 mark was in 2009.
