(MINNESOTA.CBSLOCAL) — According to AAA, the average cost of gas has been more than $3 per gallon for 1,000 days straight.

It’s the longest streak ever for gas prices at this level. Right now, the average in Minnesota is $3.50 per gallon, slightly lower than the national average of $3.54 per gallon.

Bob Darbelnet, president and CEO of AAA, says kiss the days of cheaper gas prices goodbye.

“Paying less than $3 per gallon for gasoline may be automotive history for most Americans, like using 8-track tapes or going to a drive-in movie,” Darbelnet said. “The reality is that expensive gas is here to stay, which is tough on millions of people who need a car to live their lives.”
