It's not your imagination. You actually are paying more for a gallon of gas today than you did last month, and almost 25 cents more than you did last year at this time. And yes, the rise in prices is continuing.
If you're like me, and I know I am--you've never really considered what day of the week it is while stopping to fill up with gas. I mean, call me old school, but I generally fill up when it appears that my tank is low and in need of a refuel. Now I find out that's been costing me money.
Just when you thought it was safe to take a little break from thinking about taxes, we get a new report that details what we're spending on gas taxes. Looking it over, it seems that every day is tax day.
It's not much, but every little bit helps. After rising at the beginning of January, pump prices are back on the decline in Illinois and northern Indiana heading into February. We're looking at lower prices than last month, but we're still up from this time last year.
The Illinois Corn Growers Association and the American Lung Association recently appeared before a state Senate Committee to present the benefits of Ethanol 15, a gasoline that is better for the environment and would bring cheaper prices to the pumps for Illinois consumers.
