(Chicago, IL) Gas prices continue to fall across the area, but experts say the drops may soon be over. AAA says the average gallon of gas in Illinois currently stands at $4.73, 18-cents lower than this time last week, but still 46-cents higher than the national average. The state has the highest prices of any east of the Rocky Mountains and the 9th highest in the country. Lake County sits at $4.78. Wisconsin prices have fallen below the $4 mark at $3.96…a 20-cent drop from last week, and 31-cents below the national average. Kenosha County has an average price of $3.97. AAA says demand for gasoline, which has been down in recent months, is starting to show signs of a rebound, which could lead to prices at the pump heading higher once again.
