Gas prices have dropped below three-dollars a gallon in Wisconsin – but for now, you have to drive close to the state’s borders to take advantage. According to Wisconsin Gas Prices-Dot-Com, over a dozen stations are listed as selling regular unleaded between 2.96-and-2.99. They’re all located in Kenosha, Hudson, River Falls, Woodville, and Houlton where price competition spills over from neighboring Illinois and Minnesota. Fuel prices have been dropping for most of December as the result of steady crude oil prices and smaller demand. A Wisconsin Triple-“A” spokeswoman has predicted that fuel will drop below three-bucks for the first time in at least a couple years. Minnesota has had some of the nation’s lowest gas prices for some time now. The Triple-“A” says the Gopher State is average almost 3.03-a-gallon this morning. Wisconsin’s average is 3.21 – about a penny-and-a-half cheaper than yesterday, and less than two cents more expensive than a year ago at holiday time.
