AAA has reported that the national average price for a gallon of gas fell 7 cents in the past week to reach $3.71, a level not seen since the beginning of March. The primary reason for this decline is the recent lower cost for oil, according to the AAA report. As of Monday, the average price in Wisconsin was 3.465.

The Wisconsin State Patrol officially dedicated a monument as a tribute to eight state troopers who lost their lives on duty. A ceremony was held last week at the academy located at Fort McCoy in western Wisconsin. State leaders, family members and former State Patrol officers attended the ceremony to pay their respects.
