Wisconsin motorists are continuing to see some relief at the gas pump. Over the last two months, the average price for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel has dropped by almost 50 cents across Wisconsin. As of Thursday afternoon, AAA’s fuel gauge report showed a statewide average of $3.41 a gallon.
While that has meant some better deals for Wisconsin drivers, Pam Moen of Wisconsin AAA notes that prices still remain historically high for this time of year. She says the current statewide average is a few pennies above where it was at this time last year.
Moen notes the Badger State has finally gone back below the national average for the first time since March of this year. She says the switch to winter blends of fuels, lower demand on the east coast, and declining crude prices have helped to lower the cost at the pump.
