Home heating costs on the decline


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.
