Wisconsin gas prices $1 lower than month ago

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- The average price for a gallon of regular unleaded gas dropped nearly 6 cents Monday in Wisconsin, continuing a decline that's made filling up at the pumps more tolerable.

  The daily fuel gauge report from AAA says the average price in the Badger State is $2.89 a gallon.

  That's $1 lower than the price a month ago, but 2 cents more than a year ago.

  The national average for regular unleaded is $2.92 a gallon, down 3 cents from Sunday, with 35 states now selling gas averaging less than $3 a gallon.

  The cheapest gas in the Midwest is in Iowa where it averages $2.64 a gallon for regular.

  The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, or OPEC, holds an emergency meeting in Vienna later this week to talk about cutting production to shore up oil prices.

  OPEC countries produce about 40 percent of the world's oil.
