Mechanical problems could be caused by unleaded regular gasoline that came from the company’s Whiting, Ind. facility between Aug. 13 and 17.
The average cost for a gallon of regular unleaded in the Chicago area Monday was $3.91 — up more than 30 cents from a week ago. CBS 2′s Pamela Jones reports.
Gasoline prices are definitely dropping, but that’s small consolation to motorists who say there is still too much pain at the pump.
Costco Wholesale Corp. will soon start selling gasoline at its Chicago warehouse store.
It’s not assured, but one expert says a combination of factors could send gasoline prices past $6 a gallon. CBS 2′s Derrick Blakley reports.
It’s not just market forces driving up the price of gasoline. There are also taxes and special additive costs, CBS 2′s Mai Martinez reports.
If you’ve filled up your car recently, you already know the price of gas is going up. The national average for a gallon of regular is $3.07. Here in Chicago, that same gallon costs $3.30. As CBS 2’s Dorothy Tucker reports, consumers will feel this price hike in more places than just the pump.
A rolled-over semi truck spilled diesel fuel on the Far South Side and temporarily closed all inbound lanes of the Bishop Ford Expressway late Thursday morning.
