Decreasing Gas Prices for Labor Day Weekend

Sep 2, 2015

 One year ago, motorists were complaining the price of gasoline for Labor Day travel was high. This year, not so much.

That's the assessment of a petroleum analyst for the website .

Patrick DeHaan says prices in Wisconsin are averaging $2.56. down from $3.44 one year ago.

DeHaan says it's a matter of supply and demand...

Just before Christmas, gas prices took a jump after falling to about $3.11.  

Patrick DeHaan, a petroleum analyst for the website Gas told Ken Krall this likely is a short-term rise.

DeHaan says another factor in rising gas prices, tension in the oil-producting Middle East, is beginning to lessen. He says that factor also is stabilizing prices.
