Gas prices in Wisconsin continue to fall, with a statewide average that’s now a dollar lower than it was at this time last year.
Prices spiked in August following the shutdown of a major refinery in Indiana. However, they have continued to move down after operations were restored last month. According to the AAA-Wisconsin Fuel Gauge Report, the statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded fuel is $2.37. At this time last month, it was $2.63 a gallon.
Wisconsin is still above the national average of about $2.28 a gallon, although prices are down significantly from where they were at this time last year. AAA says the statewide average for September 21, 2014 was $3.40 a gallon.
Parts of the state did see prices briefly dip below $2 a gallon earlier this year and experts say, barring any supply disruptions, it could happen again as we get closer to the winter months.
