Motorists can expect to pay a little more at the pump than they did last year at this time in Door and Kewaunee County. Climbing oil prices, high demand, and a switch to reformulated gasoline is to blame for the recent surge which, at a nationwide average of $2.76, is the highest they have been in three years. Sister Bay Mobil owner Dave Lienau says motorists can expect to pay 18-20 percent more in fuel this year compared to last and hopes it does not have a lingering effect on tourism.
According to GasBuddy.com, prices locally range from $2.45 in Luxemburg to $2.75 in Sturgeon Bay.
