Wisconsin Gas Prices Higher Than National Average

(Dodge County) Wisconsin drivers are paying more than the national average for gas. Gas prices are rising despite crude oil prices continuing to drop. A barrel of oil was under $80-dollars on Monday, but according to the AAA, gas prices rose over nine-cents during the previous week for a national average of $3.76 a gallon.

Here in Wisconsin, AAA reports the state’s average for a gallon of gas was $3.92 as of Wednesday. It’s apparently the first time in at least the past year that the state average exceeds the national average.

The pump price in Dodge County is averaging $3.98 a gallon. It is $3.92 in Fond du Lac County, Columbia County’s gas costs $3.90, in Washington County its $3.95, $3.97 in Jefferson County, and $4.03 in Green Lake County.
