AAA: A Sure Sign of Spring – Gas Prices are on the Rise

AURORA, Ill., Mar. 4, 2014 — For those who have been waiting throughout this extreme winter for signs of spring, the slow but steady climb of gas prices as March begins is one of the first indicators. Gas price averages started the year off relatively low due to less driving and decreased demand, but prices are starting to rise as many refineries begin seasonal maintenance. Illinois and Indiana drivers are currently paying on average $3.70 and $3.61 respectively for a gallon of regular unleaded. These prices reflect a rise of over $.30 from just a month ago.
