Relief at the Gas Pump

Gas prices drop; under $4 in Grayslake.

Gas prices are slowly descending. Grayslake drivers can finally find gas that is under $4 a gallon for regular.

The price was at $3.94 a gallon at the Marathon at 735 E. Belvidere Road and at the Speedway at 491 S. Route 83, according to Mapquest.

Part of the reason gas prices are on the decline is that the market is switching over to the less expensive winter blend according to Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at the Oil Price Information Service (OPIS), in The Wall Street Journal MarketWatch.

Nationwide gas prices are currently an average of 3.807 per gallon of regular grade. In Illinois, the average is 3.994. Illinois residents can blame a good part of the cost of a gallon of gas on taxes. Illinois has the seventh highest gasoline tax rate in the country, according to the Tax Foundation.

but by August prices rapidly rose to more than $4. The rapid rise in Chicagoland gas prices in August was being blamed on a Midwest refinery issue.

The national average is still 30 cents more per gallon than it was a year ago, according to TIME Moneyland.

Historically, gas prices tend to fall from September through Christmas.  AAA expects this trend, which has held true for seven of the previous nine years, to continue in 2012, according to the AAA News Room.

We’re not quite at that http://www.coachfactoryoutletonlinebc.org stage yet. But we may be on the right path. For http://www.coachoutletod.com perhaps the greatest geek triumph of the 2012 presidential http://www.coachfactoryoutletbo.net elections was the unlikely figure of statistician Nate Silver, http://www.coachoutletpn.com whose FiveThirtyEight blog – which algorithmically assessed http://www.coachfactorystoredo.com hundreds of polls based on their historical accuracy – http://www.coachoutletos.org managed to successfully predict the result in 50 out http://www.coachoutletstorefb.com of 50 states.His analysis – like every political story – divides http://www.coachoutletstoreonlinert.com opinion. To my mind, though, his work shines a light on a bigger story about our future relationship http://www.coachoutletonlinelc.net with technology, and in particular on a vision of progress http://www.coachoutletonlinelon.com where there’s an increasingly clear divide between those http://www.coachoutletonlinelsa.com endeavours that can safely be left to humans, and those where http://www.coachoutletdt.net machines and mathematics are preferable.It’s something that http://www.louisvuittonoutletcft.net is already happening.
