Falling gas prices have sunk below the $2.00 a gallon mark in southeast Wisconsin and to the west.

Triple A Wisconsin's Pam Moen says they're getting reports of $1.95 a gallon in Hudson. Probably because Minnesota gas is selling below the $2.00 a gallon level.

Moen says gas prices have been falling consistently and she expects the trend to continue unless something drastic happens to change the crude oil situation. Right now it's selling for around $52 dollars a barrel.

And Moen says that's because the unusually warmer winter, until Monday at least, cut the need for home heating oil and that's driving down the cost of crude.

Moen says the official Triple A statewide average for a gallon of regular unleaded gas is $2.18 a gallon but still, that's a full dollar lower than where it was in August when motorists were paying record high amounts.
