(ABC 6 NEWS) -- A new analysis by GasBuddy tracked trends over the last four years finding which day of the week saw the cheapest gasoline prices.

“Surprisingly, many states see the lowest gasoline prices for the week during the weekend, which may come as a surprise to many motorists,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.com.

According to the analysis, 65% of states saw lower prices during the weekend than the week, which included Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Minnesota is one of those states. The best day for drivers in Iowa is Monday. GasBuddy’s data found that very few states saw Tuesday or Wednesday as the best day to fuel up.

Few states also saw consistency year to year in the day that featured the best prices, with just Delaware, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, and South Dakota seeing the lowest prices on the same day for three out of the four years the study looked at.
