CHICAGO (CBS) — Gas prices in Illinois and Indiana remain basically unchanged in November from a month ago, due largely to increasing oil prices and a fluctuating global economy, the AAA reported Monday.

Monthly average prices in Illinois were $3.49, according to AAA Chicago’s most recent Fuel Gauge Report. The Illinois average for regular unleaded remained flat during the past month, but is still 51 cents higher than November 2010’s price.

As of Monday morning, the average price in the city of Chicago was $3.49, according to AAA. This is lower than the $3.56 from  a month ago, but higher than last year’s price per gallon of $3.02.
