AAA Weekly Fuel Gage

Today’s national average of $2.64 is one penny more than last week, two cents more than last month and 21-cents cheaper than last year. Wisconsin remains below the national average, however, gas prices are fluctuating amid high refinery maintenance and low U.S. refinery utilization dropping to its lowest rate – 83% – since Sept. 2017. The tightening gasoline supplies is causing nearly half of all state gas price averages to increase on the week.

For the last four weeks in the Great Lakes and Central States, both gasoline stocks and regional refinery utilization have steadily decreased, contributing to the fluctuation in pump prices. EIA’s latest data for the week ending Oct. 11, measures total regional stocks at 50.5 million bbls and measures utilization at 86%, as compared to 53 million bbls and 100% utilization as of Sept. 6, 2019.
