We're seeing prices going down at the pump, and they could continue to drop.
Gas prices in Wisconsin have dropped 25-cents in the past 10 days, with a gallon of regular unleaded averaging $3.86 across the state. Pam Moen of AAA Wisconsin says it's nice to see some relief after months rising prices, which reached a record high of $4.11 this summer.
Moen says lower prices are the result of massive declines in the cost of crude oil and reduced demand from consumers. If that continues, she says more savings could be on the way, with prices possibly dropping another quarter by Labor Day.
However, the market remains unstable and prices could rise again quickly. A hurricane in the Gulf of Mexico or problems in the Middle East could lead to speculators again driving prices back up.
