Wisconsin has another distinction we may not like. We're now paying some of the highest gasoline prices in the country.

According to Triple A Wisconsin's Pam Moen, the state average is now three dollars and forty one cents a gallon. That breaks our own record set last August by twenty three cents. It's also twenty cents higher than the national average.

Moen says two large Midwestern refineries are still down for maintenance and that's cutting the gasoline supply to what some experts are calling frighteningly low.

We probably won't see any relief in prices until those supplies can build back up. That coincidentally won't happen until after the Memorial Day weekend.

Moen says the Ohio refinery is due on line any day now and the huge refinery in Indiana is now scheduled to be producing again in June.
