All Gas, No Brakes: Wisconsin Gas Prices Are Falling

MADISON, Wis. — Right in time for the holidays, Wisconsin drivers are seeing lower prices at the pump. Just two weeks ago, President Biden united other nations to take substantive steps to stabilize oil prices and release 50 million barrels of oil from the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve. 

As gas prices fall, Wisconsinites are celebrating lower costs this holiday season — with experts predicting gas prices will continue to drop even further. With President Biden cutting costs for middle-class families and Gov. Evers cutting middle-class taxes by 15 percent, Democrats are delivering for working Wisconsinites. 

See how families across the state and country are breathing a little easier thanks to lower gas prices:
