MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin gas prices continue to fall, and that’s great news for July 4th holiday travelers.

The AAA’s statewide average for regular unleaded is just over $3.45 a gallon Wednesday morning. That’s 11 cents less than a week ago, and 45 cents less than a month ago.

Experts credit the price drop to the resumption of full gasoline production at Midwest refineries that were down for maintenance over the past few months.

With the holiday on a Thursday, a number of Wisconsinites plan to take Friday off to enjoy a four-day weekend. The state government will be open on Friday, and so will many local institutions and businesses.

The state DOT says road construction work will end at noon Wednesday for the holiday, and some projects may not resume until Monday.

The State Patrol expects the busiest travel times to be between noon and 8 p.m. Wednesday, Thursday, and Sunday.
