In a new report that surprises no one, Chicago has the highest gas prices in the nation. With the national average coming in at around $2.92 per gallon, the average price here in Chicago is $3.22 per gallon. The results of the new Lundberg survey come just ahead of the typical seasonal rise in prices heading in to the summer. But there may be some relief ahead. Even as gas prices have increased and BP still toils with the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, the United States' crude oil supply has increased and the price per barrel has dropped, indicating a drop of gasoline prices may be on the way.
