SPRINGFIELD IL – The price of gas currently over four dollars a gallon in the Capitol City. Some gas stations are at $4.10 a gallon, just less than a dime form the record high in 2008.
The price at the pump has gone up 40 cents a gallon this past month. Triple-A of Chicago warned about this happening, as gulf coast refineries shut down because of tropical storm Isaac. A suburban Chicago pipeline is also part of the blame for higher prices.
