Chicago is currently paying the highest price for a gallon of gas. This is mostly due to the taxes. We pay Federal, State, City and County taxes on our gasoline, which as you know is already built into the price advertised at the pump.

I paid $3.50 a gal yesterday.....Remember a few years back when they waived a tax and we saved $.05 cent a gallon? I bet that was atleast 10 years ago
