(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.
