CHICAGO (CBS) — Gas prices have been a really hot topic, from the race for the White House to the everyday lives of millions of Americans – and the prices in Chicago remain the highest.

As CBS 2’s Kris Habermehl reports, gas prices rose an average of 4 cents a gallon over the past two weeks. But according to analysts at the Lundberg Survey, the nationwide average is only about $3.97, and apparently has hit the high point.
