Gas prices continue pre-autumn fall in Wisconsin

MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The leaves are not falling just yet, but Wisconsin gas prices continue their normal pre-autumn drop.

The state’s AAA said the average statewide price was almost $3.55 a gallon Thursday morning for regular unleaded. That’s almost a penny less than Wednesday, 7 cents cheaper than a week ago, 14 cents less than a month ago, and 36 cents less than at this time in 2012.

The AAA said last year was an exception, when Hurricane Isaac and refinery issues caused a sudden spike in fuel prices.

Analysts expect no such issues this year – although the hurricane season in the Gulf of Mexico could affect gas prices in late summer and fall.
