Gas priced at below $2 a gallon—a level not seen in Antigo in years—is moving northward.
In May, 2011, gas had marched to over $4 a gallon locally. Now 43 months later, a precipitous drop in oil prices worldwide has nudged the price below $2 in nearby Wittenberg, which traditionally offers the lowest prices in the area.
In Antigo, most stations were selling gas today at just under $2.25 a gallon, ahead of the $2.19 statewide average. The last time gas was below $2 in Antigo was in mid-2008.
