According to a weekly survey, the average price at the pump is $3.46.

GasBuddy.com tallied the average price for a gallon of gas at 615 stations in Milwaukee on Sunday.

The average price of a gallon of gas in Milwaukee was $3.46 Sunday

The survey indicates the price dropped 0.8 cents per gallon in the past week. The cost was 21.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago, and 37.8 cents per gallon lower than the same day last year.

The national average on Sunday fell 0.4 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.57.

GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan says the national average has been “remarkably quiet.” However, DeHaan says that could change, due to a “sizable” decline in gasoline inventories last week.
