Milwaukee Pays Less for Gas Than National Average

People in Milwaukee are paying a nickel less for gas today than they did just one week ago.  According to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 615 gas outlets in Milwaukee, the average price of a gallon of gas is $1.83. 

While the price per gallon in Milwaukee continues to go down, the national average did not move in the past week, averaging $2.03 per gallon, according to GasBuddy.

The price in Madison declined by 4 cents per gallon and 6.4 cents in Rockford, IL.  Gasoline in Chicago, however, went up nearly 4 cents with the average price now at $2.03 per gallon. 

Patrick DeHaan, the senior petroleum analyst at GasBuddy, expects that within the next 24 hours the national average to drop to a new six year low.  “The U.S. average needs to fall just seven-tenths of a penny to $2.025 per gallon to be the lowest since March 25, 2009," said DeHaan.  “The national average has once again resumed falling after Turkey's downing of a Russian fighter jet caused a brief hiatus, but with prices moving lower, a $1.99 national average gasoline price could be something we witness this week," he added.
