20-cent drop in gas prices seen around La Crosse area



A surprise at the gas pump in the La Crosse area. The cost of filling up went down about 20 cents a gallon in the last couple of days. 

The price for regular unleaded at some Kwik Trip stores dropped to $3.09 a gallon by Wednesday morning, and outside La Crosse, prices under $3 have been reported by the Gas Buddy website. 

At the end of last week, another website reported La Crosse’s average gas price at $3.38 — fourth highest among Wisconsin metro areas, behind Pierce County, Eau Claire and Superior.

According to Gas Buddy, the lowest price in the La Crosse area today is $2.96 per gallon in West Salem.

Statewide, a station in Luxemburg is selling gas for $2.19 a gallon.

A few skeptics on social media suggested that the sudden price drop was timed to coincide with the State of the Union speech by President Joe Biden, or with his Wednesday visit to the Madison area.
