Chicago Drivers Paying Highest Gas Prices In The Nation

Both AAA Motor Club’s Fuel Gauge Report and GasBuddy.com, have given Chicago the dubious distinction of having the nation’s highest gas prices.

“Yes, Chicago is the top dog, number one, top of the heap for gas prices no matter if we like it or not,” said GasBuddy spokesperson Patrick DeHaan, who is based in the Windy City. “The highly coveted, most ridiculously high gas prices of the nation goes to…Chicago!”

Chicago drivers are find they're paying the highest prices in the nation when they fill up their gas tanks.

ChicagoGasPrices.com has Chicagoland pump prices pegged at an average $4.26 for a gallon of regular unleaded gasoline while AAA’s Fuel Gauge Report lists the average price within the city limits at a painful $4.36 per gallon. These prices are between $0.75 to $0.85 more per gallon than the national average.

AAA’s Beth Mosher said the Illinois also has bragging rights on the higest state average for gas in the U.S. at $3.95 per gallon.

One Response to Chicago Drivers Paying Highest Gas Prices In The Nation

  1. We get “Bragging Rights” for being usurped 75 cents for every gallon of gas we buy. This is the AAA’s sole comment from an outfit which shouldn’t be called a club because they don’t stand up for motorist’s rights. They’re silent about the parking meter ripoff scandal. They fight sane speed limits and have not helped drivers regarding parasitic parking enforcement, red light scameras and soon speed scameras. Silence is not golden, in Chicago it’s Politically Correct! And I WAS a member for 30 years, but no more.
