7/28/17 – Wisconsin gas prices have been relatively stable this summer, and analysts say it should stay that way for a while. The state’s Triple “A” says the average price of regular unleaded is about $2.25 a gallon yesterday. That’s about two cents more than a month ago, and six cents more than a year ago — and it’s also three cents cheaper than the national average. Gas Buddy analyst Patrick DeHaan says OPEC’s efforts to cut foreign oil production have been offset by higher U-S fuel production — and that has helped prevent a big price spike at the pump. He says the relative stability should continue, barring a disaster like a hurricane in the Gulf Coast where half of the nation’s refinery space is located. Gas in Beaver Dam is averaging $2.21; Hustisford is at $2.18; Watertown is averaging $2.20 while Waupun is at $2.22; Madison and Sun Prairie are as low as $2.09.
