October 3, 2014 — From AAA Chicagoland — Gas price averages across Illinois and Indiana continue to drop heading into the fall season. Illinois and Indiana drivers are currently paying on average $3.46 and $3.26 respectively for a gallon of regular unleaded.

In September in northern Indiana, gas prices averaged $3.48 in September, which was down $.04 from August and down $.03 from September 2013.

“Increased crude oil supplies and decreased demand coupled with the switch to a less expensive winter blend of gasoline has helped push prices down,” said Beth Mosher, AAA Chicago spokesperson. “Drivers across Illinois and Indiana will have a bit more money to save as gas prices continue to drop this fall.”
