"Drivers in Illinois and Indiana are paying the lowest gas prices since February due to an abundance of gasoline supply, the annual switch over to the less expensive winter blend of gasoline and the end of summer driving season," said Beth Mosher director of public affairs for AAA Chicago. "The rest of autumn looks promising for continued lower gas prices barring significant refinery issues or higher oil costs."
