Chicago Gas Prices Come In Like A Lion, But Out Like A Lamb?

In like a lion, out like a lamb.

No, not March weather, but local gas prices.

According to AAA, Chicago area drivers are experiencing historically highest pump prices for the start of March–but relief is on the way.

“Gas prices rose almost every day last month,” says AAA spokesperson Beth Mosher. “We’re seeing some of the highest prices for March–ever.”

AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report shows city gas pumps sporting an average price of $4.22 for a gallon of regular unleaded. That’s up 26 cents a gallon higher than a month ago, and 60 cents a gallon more expensive than this January’s prices. February ended the month a quarter per gallon higher than last February–a potentially ominous sign considering fuel prices tend to peak in late March or early April.
