August Fuel Prices Declined According To AAA Chicago

For this month’s automotive updates, I visited the number one automotive resource of all times, TheAutoChannel.com to check on some fuel-related news and on any updates on Mercedes headlights. Fortunately, I got the best update that I just needed – the fuel prices in Illinois and Northern Indiana since mid-July. This was exactly what I’m looking for!

According to the news, AAA Chicago’s report revealed that both state’s fuel prices went down from the time when mid-July started. Since April 2007, it is the first time that Illinois and Northern Indiana plunged below $3 for regular unleaded. Fuel Gauge Report done by AAA Chicago estimates that in Illinois, regular unleaded gasoline has reduced 42 cents throughout the past month. It projected an standard cost of $2.86 per gallon for the month of August, which is 29 cents lesser per gallon from 2006.
