WAUSAU, Wis. (WAOW)-- The average price for a gallon of gas in Wisconsin hasn't changed much in the past week.
According to GasBuddy, the average price is $3.15. Gas prices in the badger state are just over 12 cents higher than a month ago and $1.19 higher than a year ago.
GasBuddy keeps record of historical gasoline prices in Wisconsin and the national average. On October 25 of 2020 the price in Wisconsin was $1.95 and the U.S. average was $2.14.
The national average is now at $3.36, risen close to four cents in the past week and is a $1.21 higher than a year ago.
"Gas prices continued to soar in a majority of the nation over the last week as oil's meteoric rise pulls gasoline and other refined product prices higher. But, there may be some light at the end of the tunnel," said Patrick De Haan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy. "The sharp rise we've seen over the last three weeks should begin slowing down soon, barring another jump in the price of oil. This is because gasoline prices have now largely caught up to the jump in oil that started nearly a month ago. This isn't an all clear for the future, however, as oil prices could rise again at any time. But for now, oil has held around $83 per barrel, and without a further climb, gas price increases should slow down soon in the bulk of the nation."
