Seasonal rise in area gas prices may be done; La Crosse 30 cents above statewide low



The cost of buying gas seems to be leveling off, after prices around the U.S. began to rise at Christmas.

The AAA says Wisconsin’s average price for gas is $3.13 a gallon — roughly 30 cents higher than in mid-December.

Around La Crosse County, the lowest pump price is $3.19, at several stations. That’s 30 cents above the statewide low near Milwaukee ($2.87 at Kenosha).

Last week, the Wisconsin average was $3.11 per gallon, also higher than last January, when $3.04 was the statewide average.

The nationwide price averages for 2022 peaked at $5.02 per gallon in the middle of June, and bottomed out at just over $3.00 at Christmas.
