Wisconsin Gas Prices Could Rise, Again

Brace yourself for another round of gas price hikes because of Tropical Storm Rita.

The Wisconsin Petroleum Council executive director Erin Roth says if Rita builds to a category four hurricane, it could be as devastating to his industry as Katrina.

The American Automobile Association says the average price of a gallon of regular unleaded gas in Wisconsin is $2.78, after reaching a record $3.11 September 4th.

Roth says Katrina has shaken America's energy industry.

Triple-A Wisconsin spokeswoman Nancy Cain says part of the reason gas prices have dropped since Katrina is because fuel demand has subsided now that the summer driving season is over.
