WISCONSIN — According to GasBuddy, Wisconsin is currently averaging the lowest gas price across the country.

Averaging at $1.21 per gallon, Wisconsin is seeing the lowest gas prices in years due to the coronavirus pandemic.

No matter if you're living in a Wisconsin county with the highest gas price or the lowest, you are still seeing historically low numbers.

St. Croix County currently has the highest gas price within the state, but it still only sits at $1.64 per gallon.

Those Wisconsinites who are lucky enough to live in Waushara County, though, are seeing gas prices below $1 per gallon. In fact, they're seeing prices of $0.95 per gallon on average.

For those in Milwaukee County, an average gallon of unleaded gas will cost you $1.18. Sheboygan and Ozaukee counties are around the same with prices around $1.25 per gallon.

Since Saturday, the average price in Wisconsin has decreased by 2.9 cents. Since last month, prices are down 49.8 cents. The most important though, is since last year. Prices are down 165.7 cents from last year's average of $2.84 per gallon.

Now, when comparing Wisconsin to the rest of the country, we have a lot to be happy about.

Wisconsin's average is a solid $.563 less than the country as a whole, with the U.S. average sitting at $1.756 per gallon.
