Gas Prices Plummet Nationwide Except in Chicago Area

gas-pricesThe national average price of a gallon of regular unleaded is $3.52 according to AAA. That’s down 8.6% from this time last year, which traditionally is the beginning of a decline in gas prices that runs through July.

While states such as Colorado and Maryland are seeing relief at the pump to the tune of 36 cents and 41 cents a gallon, respectively, recent flooding has increased prices quickly in Chicago and surrounding areas.

In Chicago, gas prices are almost 3% lower than a year ago, but compared to prices from a week ago, they’re up 7.5%. As a whole, Illinois’ average gas price is up 5.5% from last week.

Surrounding states such as Michigan and Ohio are also seeing prices rise due to the storms.

Diesel fuel prices aren’t as volatile as regular unleaded, and they exhibit smaller price swings. A gallon of diesel is down 5% compared to last year’s national average price, and the price is 1.5% lower in Illinois. Compared to a week ago, Illinois’ average price of diesel is actually slightly lower.

Advantages of buying a used car…..

If you’re not married to the idea of buying a new car, used vehicles have their own benefits:

Increased choice: Both new and used-car dealers are feeling the side effects of a tough economy. The positive side of this is that consumers win in a bear market; as dealerships close prices of large, used SUVs and even midsized cars are down, and there should be more vehicles on lots due to slowing sales.

Improving reliability: Although used vehicles typically don’t carry the same warranties as new ones, the original factory warranty on a new car is transferable to a second owner, usually at no charge. Buyers of certified pre-owned cars from an authorized dealer can purchase a late-model used car with the original warranty and then choose to add to it. The combination of a glut of late-model used vehicles, the greater reliability and durability of vehicles, and the availability of warranties make buying a used car less of a gamble.
