Weekly Wisconsin gas price update and outlook

Posted:

Wisconsin, October 8 (Press Release) - Average retail gasoline prices in Wisconsin have fallen 2.4 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.82/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has increased 0.6 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.80/g, according to gasoline price website WisconsinGasPrices.com.

Including the change in gas prices in Wisconsin during the past week, prices yesterday were 45.0 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 10.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 1.3 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 37.2 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago.

"Thanks largely due to the situation in California, the national average rose slightly in the last week," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "The good news for Californians is to expect relief this week. Around the rest of the nation I expect a mixed bag, with prices not moving significantly in either direction from what I can see at this time. Nationally, prices remain much higher than last year, especially in California, where the average now stands 88c/gal higher than a year ago," DeHaan said.
