This is always a busy time of year for Mike Flint and his staff at Mallatt?s Pharmacy and Costumes.
?We have a lot of fun this time of year,? Flint said.
There?s something else for Flint and families to look forward to this year.
According to AAA, gas prices across the country are the lowest they?ve been for 44 months.� It?s been more than three and a half years since we?ve seen the cost of a gallon of gasoline less than $3.
In Madison, AAA data shows gas averages $3.16 a gallon, about 15 cents cheaper than this time last year.
?In the grand scheme of things, it's a nice little break, you know, it puts a few more dollars in your pocket when you pull up to the pump,? regional AAA spokesperson Nick Jarmusz said.
Jarmusz said drivers shouldn?t expect the lower prices to last forever, but with the lack of disruptions in crude oil production and exports, Jarmusz does expect the cost of gas to drop even more in Wisconsin before the new year.
