Gas prices continue to drop

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Gas prices are falling.

Fuel analysts say the price of a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline has dropped 15 cents a gallon over the past month.

"That is not unusual for the fourth quarter. We typically see that because the winter blend fuels are now in the pipeline, demand drops, and right now we are seeing lower crude oil prices," said senior fuel analyst Gregg Laskoski.

Laskoski says 21 states have prices at the $3.00 per gallon mark.

How long will the falling prices last?

"I think we will see this continue through the end of the year," said Laskoski.

He adds that demand and fuel blends typically change with the warmer weather which increases demand and ultimately prices.

Additionally, the market is easily influenced by world tensions.
