Gas prices jump 11 cents since Wednesday
It's small consolation, but gas prices here haven't increased from a year ago as much as they have nationally. Thursday's average price of a gallon of regular gas was $3.673 in the Chicago area — an increase of about 29 cents from the same time last year. The national average, though, has increased about 42 cents to $3.612, according to data from AAA's Daily Fuel Gauge Report.
But prices in the past week have accelerated here faster than the national average. A gallon of regular gas has jumped 12 cents since a week ago, with almost 11 cents of that increase occurring since Wednesday.
