Home heating costs on the decline

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Fuel prices continue to fall.

That means it costs less for some people to fill up their gas tank or heat their home.

Gasbuddy.com reports the national average for a gallon of gas has dropped 36-cents since September.

Right now, the price they have listed is $3.24 for regular unleaded.

In Wisconsin, the average has dropped even lower to $3.19.

It's not only cheaper to fill up a gas tank but heat a home.

"We could see heating oil prices drop five to 15-cents a gallon between now and Christmas," said fuel analyst Patrick Dehaan.

He credits the non-existent hurricane season and North Dakota oil boom with increased supply and ultimately lower costs.
