WASHINGTON, D.C. (KDAL) - Legislation introduced by U-S Senators Klobuchar and Franken of Minnesota would help prevent spikes in gasoline prices.  The simultaneous closure of several oil refineries in the Midwest region resulted in gas prices surging to over 4 dollars a gallon in Minnesota recently. The legislation would require refineries to report their maintenance schedule to the Department of Energy to prevent several closing at the same time.  Franken says the recent spike has hurt families and businesses in Minnesota and the bill will help make sure it doesn't happen again.
