Gas prices back above $2 nationwide



The coronavirus is cited as a major reason why gas prices in America plunged well below $2 a gallon, around the first part of April. 

But now that the economy is opening up again, gas is back above $2 on average around the U.S., according to the AAA. 

In La Crosse, some stations have raised their price about 30 cents per gallon just in the past week, and a few posted a price of $2.09 early Monday. 

One month ago, La Crosse’s average gas price was $1.53.   

The Wisconsin AAA says the national average for gas is now at $2.03, after staying below $2 for 66 days. 

Wisconsin’s average is still under 2 bucks, at $1.93, which is 40 cents higher than a month ago, but still 70 cents lower than last June. 

La Crosse had the highest average pump price among major Wisconsin cities, at $1.98, apparently not reflecting the early Monday price increases.
