Gas Prices Edge Higher Than Last Memorial Day

5/27/17 – Memorial Day weekend travelers will find gasoline to cost a little more than last year, but still on the cheap side. The Triple “A” says one gallon of regular unleaded costs an average of $2.37 throughout Wisconsin Friday morning. That’s five cents more than last Friday and one cent more than last Memorial Day — but says fuel prices are at their second lowest in the past decade and “substantially lower” than the average of $3.15 during the past ten years. As with every holiday weekend, the state D-O-T will order major road construction to end at noon Friday and resume early Tuesday. The D-O-T says drivers will find lane closures and restrictions in places that include Interstate-43 in parts of Manitowoc County and the Green Bay area, and I-39-90-94 north of Madison.
