Gas prices take jump across Wisconsin following Ike
Ellsworth Wisconsin 126 S. Chestnut St. 54011

Gas prices took a big jump in Wisconsin this morning (Monday), as oil companies say they won't be able to make adequate supplies for now.

The Triple A said the average statewide price of unleaded regular rose 6.5 cents a gallon from Sunday. It's now at almost $3.92.

MilwaukeeGasPrices.com reports a high of $4.29 in the state's largest metro.

Nationally, unleaded jumped 12 cents in the last few days to $3.80. That's because Hurricanes Ike and Gustav shut down most oil production near the Gulf Coast and damaged refineries in Louisiana and south Texas. Diesel fuel - which is used to transport our food and such - is holding relatively steady for now.

The Triple A's statewide price of $4.13 was just 0.2 higher than Sunday.
