A recent spike in fuel prices has Chicago drivers paying the highest gasoline prices in the U.S.
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.

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.
