Chi Town Gets Gas Break

The Chicago area, which usually leads the nation’s highest gas prices, is getting a break at the pump.
Patrick DeHaan, a senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.com, says Chicago’s apparent discounted gas prices are partly due to local refineries clearing out the winter blend gas to make room for cleaner-burning summer blend.
“Prices across Chicago continue to buck the national trend and have gone down in the last week,” said DeHaan. “The national average has gone up 5 cents last week and Chicago dropped about 9 cents a gallon last week.”
