Passing on Gas

2008_4_22.gas.jpgHoly cancel that roadtrip, Batman! Gas prices climbed ever-higher today, and analysts say they expect the rise to continue through June. According to the most recent reports from AAA, the average prices for a gallon of regular gas are, solar-powered-drumroll please: $3.51 nationally, $3.65 in Illinois and $3.72 in Chicago.

The lowest price we could find on Gas Buddy for Chicago was $3.72 at a BP and a Citgo on the South West Side. Good thing it's walkin' weather. [AP, photo of crazy gas prices by mjkmjk]
