[Madison, WI] – Across Wisconsin, families are hurting from Democrat-fueled inflation at the pump. As the state average hits $4.80 a gallon, prices in communities like Milwaukee and Kenosha have already topped $5 per gallon following a year of massive spending and anti-energy policies under Joe Biden.
