Gas Prices Continue Down

(Undated) — For the second straight week, the national average price of gasoline has dropped, falling 3.2 cents per gallon over the last week to $2.17. According to Head of Petroleum Analysis, Patrick DeHann, seasonal factors, as expected, are pushing gas prices down in most areas across the country. In addition, oil prices have hit a rough patch on renewed concerns about the economy and falling demand. DeHann says no one should be in a hurry to fill up as prices will likely continue to trend downward. The current statewide average in Illinois is $2.29 a gallon. It’s $2.02 a gallon in Indiana.
