“I think that prices are still high,”says Triple-A spokesman Beth Mosher. “Prices are coming down a bit, but we don’t expect there to be any great relief until after the election.” Mosher says that’s not a political statement but rather a chronological one. She believes the supply of fuel will be high enough to force prices down around the middle of November.
Interestingly, the national average –$3.78 – has been on the rise, Mosher says, while the Illinois price has been declining. The Illinois price one year ago was $3.53, 40 cents cheaper than it is now.
