Minnesota Weigh Station & DOT Information

Total Weigh Stations & Truck Scales: 15

Minnesota is home to the Mall of America- the largest shopping mall in the United States. Located in Bloomington (just south of Minneapolis), it has more than 520 stores, 50 restaurants and an aquarium. Complete that with a roller coaster and a log ride. Oh, and there is no sales tax on clothing in Minnesota, so get your wallet ready! If things haven’t changed, you can park your rig in a lot across the street- but you can’t leave it there after the mall closes.

The Minnesota fuel tax rate is $0.22 per gallon. This rate varies depending on the amount needed to maintain the underground storage tank (UST) cleanup fee fund.
