CHICAGO (CBS) — Gasoline prices are on the rise once again in Chicago, spiking more than 18 cents in the past week.
The average price for a gallon of regular gasoline was $4.10 on Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 1,437 gas outlets in Chicago.
This compares with the national average of $3.62, an 11 cent jump.
In Chicago, prices are 34.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 28.0 cents per gallon lower than a month ago.
“Nationally, gasoline prices have begun moving upward yet again. I suspect that the unrest in Egypt is playing a significant role in pushing crude values higher, and thus retail gasoline prices higher as well,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan.
